Enhance student’s STEM skills & prepare them for future careers
There will be no failure to advance when students utilize our STEM Lacrosse supplemental curriculum in classrooms or after-school programs. Using their heads and the ones atop the provided sticks, youngsters will collaborate and problem solve using lacrosse as the real-life application. As examples, students will:
Learn how the position of a lacrosse stick will influence potential energy.
Design a piece of technology to track and enhance a player’s movement and performance.
Use the engineering design process to produce headgear that is both safe and functional for men and women during play.
Construct a scale model of a lacrosse field by applying math concepts of Units and Area.
Cradling is found in our 5E lesson sequence which provides all of the support needed for successful shots towards everyone’s educational goals.

All STEM Sports® curriculum kits are designed for repeated use and can serve hundreds of students. Within each classroom, after-school program or camp setting, implementation for one student up to 30+ is possible per module. Or, two modules can be implemented simultaneously. There are lots of variables to consider and our curricula is well designed for expandability and scalability.
All of the supplies in the kit are non-perishable and are designed to last for several years. Some supplied items, such as 500 rubber bands and/or 1,000 craft sticks may have to be replaced over time.
Because all STEM Sports® programs are aligned with all or either of the following standards: Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards and National Standards for K-12 Physical Education, our supplemental curriculum is a perfect fit for public, private or charter schools classrooms. Then and because of the curricula’s standardization, the modules are a great fit for after-school programs as well as camp settings.
Our 5E lesson plans make teaching modules easier and students will be more willing to learn. Why? Because the way our STEM Sports® activities are set up, the sequence of lesson is well established, concepts and objectives are thoroughly scoped and the majority of students love sports and will view the learning as play. Then, students will develop 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, creative problem-solving, and leadership. So back to who is best to teach or administer STEM Sports® curricula? Everyone from science and STEM teachers, to PE teachers, sports coaches, volunteers and even the students the curricula is designed for. The 21st century skills we engrain with students are the same skills that they can utilize to help their fellow students.
