STEM FOOTBALL CURRICULUM

STEM Football is an engaging educational enrichment program that includes an eight (8) module curriculum rooted in Next Generation Science Standards. STEM Football is flexible and can be implemented in a classroom setting, after-school enrichment programs, and summer camp models.

What Is the STEM Football Kit?

The STEM Football curriculum is designed to pair strategic STEM-based activities with professional football history and current hot topics. STEM Football gives students the opportunity to get behind the sport they love with lessons centered around the innovation and technology behind gloves that receivers and defensive backs wear, in-game communication, and much more. STEM Football 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 Football 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 3-6, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

(1) How many students does each kit serve?

It’s recommended that each kit serve 12 students, or 6 pairs of students.

(2) How long does each kit last?

No item in any STEM Sports kit is perishable. Therefore, kits can be used numerous times over several years with normal wear and tear.

(3) How many students can a single STEM Basketball kit serve over time?

Literally hundreds. Each of the eight lessons/modules is designed for groups of 12 students. If a classroom has 24 students, they would break up into two groups and the same lesson would be administered to all 24 students, simultaneously. If the entire kit was used in four different classrooms over the course of one-half of a school year, 96 students would be served or as many as 192 over the course of one year.
