NETSTEM Scholar of the Month
Each month, one student participating in NETSTEM is rewarded with the opportunity to attend a Brooklyn Nets home game. The student receives the opportunity to attend pre-game shootaround courtside, snap a photo with a Nets player and also take a behind-the-scenes tour of Barclays Center with a focus on STEM related careers throughout the venue. The goal of the evening is to open the student’s mind to all of the exciting career possibilities in STEM and beyond.
