About the STEM Sports® - Lacrosse Program

There will be no failure to advance when students utilize STEM Sport's 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 the 5E lesson sequence which provides all of the support needed for successful shots towards everyone’s educational goals.

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.
