Using Sports & Technology to Engage Students in STEM


Make STEM Engaging

Math and science can be found everywhere we look, including on the basketball court and in the hockey rink. Using sports to teach math and science concepts is a great way to engage students and bring these classroom topics to life.

This teacher-led workshop will offer strategies and lesson ideas to bring the world of sports into your classroom.

Join STEM teacher, Kelly Landin, and EVERFI implementation managers, Samantha Du Preez and Ryan Trauger, as they discuss some of their favorite lessons for connecting key math and science concepts to the world of sports. They'll also dive into ready-to-use experiments and lab packets which follow the scientific method and encourage inquiry and problem-solving skills. This webinar will offer concrete ideas for engaging students in STEM and connecting the classroom to the real world.

Attendees will receive:

  • A certificate for 1 hour of professional development
  • Free access to the twelve digital lessons from Future Goals Hockey Scholar℠
