STEM GOLF GRADES 3-5 & 6-8 SUPPLEMENTAL CURRICULUM

The STEM Golf program is a unique STEM supplemental curriculum with a variety of different lessons. Most importantly, students will learn 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, creative problem-solving, and leadership.

About the STEM Golf Grades 3-5 & 6-8 Curriculum

Swing into a great educational course with our STEM Golf supplemental curriculum. If your students are having a rough time learning traditional STEM skills, approach our program with our partner ShortGolf® and their outstanding golf equipment, which are officially licensed products of the PGA Tour. It is a fair way to develop young students’ drive to be better leaders and problem solvers.

The eight-lesson pace of STEM Golf bumps and runs through lessons such as:

  • How the rotation of the earth causes change in the atmosphere and hydrosphere, creating different climates across the globe and thus affecting a golf course and its grass.
  • Gaining knowledge about gravity and/or gravitational force applied by the earth on objects directed down, which includes golf balls.
  • Learning about distance and potential energy through the practice of swinging a club at different angles and speeds and thus swing radius.
  • The composition of a golf ball which is often unknown yet unique, with an assist from Callaway Golf®. Students will learn why there are “dimples” on a ball and how they affect the flight and spin of the ball.

While the teacher or administrator of this supplemental curriculum will truly be a caddie to the youth in their gallery, these students will be able to attain lofty STEM learning goals while playing through STEM Golf.
