S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Education allows students to engage in real world problems and experiences through project-based, experiential learning activities that lead to higher level thinking. Session participants will learn through ACTIVE participation, how to implement S.T.E.M. education through different sport, fitness and movement activities for all students. The activities and assessments use best practices where students are given the opportunity to experience, talk, debate, discover, design, create, and build.
