Swing into a great educational course with our STEM Golf supplemental curriculum. If your students are having a rough time learning traditional STEM skills, approach this program with the partnership of ShortGolf® and their outstanding golf equipment, which are officially licensed products of the PGA Tour. It is a fair way to develop young students drive to be better leaders and problem solvers. The eight-lesson pace of STEM Golf bumps and runs through lessons such as:

 

  • How the rotation of the earth causes change in the atmosphere and hydrosphere, creating different climates across the globe and thus affecting a golf course and its grass.
  • Gaining knowledge about gravity and/or gravitational force applied by the earth on objects directed down, which includes golf balls.
  • Learning about distance and potential energy through the practice of swinging a club at different angles and speeds and thus swing radius.
  • The composition of a golf ball which is often unknown yet unique. Students will learn why there are "dimples" on a ball and how they affect the flight and spin of the ball.
  • While the teacher or administrator of this supplemental curriculum will truly be a caddie to the youth in their gallery, these students will be able to attain lofty STEM learning goals while playing through STEM Golf.

  • ShortGolf® Clubs (length of clubs correlates to students height)

Frequently Asked Questions:

HOW MANY STUDENTS DOES EACH KIT SERVE?

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.


HOW LONG DOES EACH KIT LAST?

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.


WHAT FORMAT IS THE CURRICULUM MOST EFFECTIVE IN?

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.


WHO CAN TEACH OR ADMINISTER THE CURRICULUM?

The 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.
