About This Program

The Science of Sport is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to developing curriculum and programming that promotes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) through sports. Programs are designed to bring math and science to life through in school exercises and hands-on learning by providing engaging programs for students and teachers. The goal is to translate the love of sport into an appreciation, understanding and passion of the science and mathematics underlying the sport. Through this approach, they aim to empower students who may be underperforming academically by relating core curriculum topics to their athletic strengths, capabilities, and interests. Learn more at:
