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.
About the STEM Football Curriculum
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 administered easily – and reusable sporting and science equipment for the program to be fully implemented. Although 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, e.g., in-school, after-school programs and in camp settings.
