Skyhawks: STEM & Play Basketball
This program combines strategic STEM-based activities with traditional Skyhawks basketball instruction and a focus on life skills such as teamwork and sportsmanship. The STEM Sports® basketball curriculum educates children on subjects including velocity and acceleration, basketball shoe design, tracking with technology and much, much more! Participants will also learn the fundamentals of passing, shooting, ball handling, rebounding and defense through skill-based drills and scrimmages. Skyhawks puts the Sports in STEM.
STEM & Play programs use sports as the real-life application to engage elementary and middle school-aged participants. The double-play combination of physical activity and cognitive thinking provides a comprehensive, inquiry-based educational experience and a solution for crucial science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) literacy for students.
