Historically, it’s a no brainer. Survey kids and usually most of them will tell you they prefer a P.E. class over a math one.
When it comes to STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – education, those subjects tend to pale in popularity overall. Educators find students have more difficulty retaining those concepts, which are crucial in many daily applications and jobs.
If only there was a way to harness the approachability of sports and use it to make those subjects approachable as well.
Phoenix-based STEM Sports does just that. Since 2016, it has provided standards-aligned K-8 supplemental curricula that enhance students’ STEM skills with sports as real-life applications to teach those subjects.
