Phoenix-Based Education Company Provides Free STEM Curricula

  • |

STEM Sports is offering five free STEM lessons involving sports to students in grades 3 through 8 to continue their education at home. The lessons use basketball, football, soccer and volleyball to teach students science, technology, engineering and math principles while encouraging and engaging children in physical activity. According to a Review of Educational Research, students lose one month’s worth of learning during the two months of summer break, with greater losses in math than reading. Based on this, STEM Sports believes it is critical to keep students active and learning during this quickly-changing pandemic that is keeping many students at home. “I feel like we’re obligated to help,” said Jeff Golner, the President and CEO of STEM Sports. “This pandemic impacts everyone, especially young students. We want to give students and their families
resources to prevent gaps in education ahead of the summer slump. It will also help occupy their minds and bodies during the break.” The lessons provided are family-friendly and require simple sport equipment so both parents and students may be involved in the learning process while students stay home during this isolation period. To access the resources, visit the organization’s website at and fill out a brief form. The free lessons will be emailed to the user for PDF download with Google Drive. Additionally, a free, non-sport specific lesson called Playing with Precision will be offered.
