STEM BASKETBALL CURRICULUM
STEM Basketball is an engaging educational enrichment program that includes an eight (8) module curriculum that is equal parts education, athletics, and exercise. This program was designed for grades 3 through 6 but could be used for older or younger student groups.
What Is the STEM Basketball Kit?
Designed to pair strategic STEM-based activities with basic game-play and current hot topics, STEM Basketball gives students the opportunity to get behind the sport they love with lessons centered around the innovation and technology behind basketball shoes, calculating calories in relation to general game-play, velocity and acceleration with passing, and much more. STEM Basketball is an educational enrichment program made up of eight (8) modules and worksheets that align with Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core State Standards. Each STEM Basketball kit includes a teacher’s manual -- that is easily administered -- and reusable sporting and science equipment in order for the program to be fully implemented. Although specifically composed for grades 3-8, the program is constructed with flexibility in mind as it can be scaled and taught to older student groups and in a variety of settings, i.e. in-school, after-school programs and in camp settings.
