- Curriculum Sample
Designed to pair strategic STEM-based activities with essential game-play and current hot topics, STEM Soccer gives students the opportunity to get behind the sport they love with lessons centered around the transformation and technology behind a soccer ball’s design and the materials that make it up, the history and innovation of goal-line technology and more. STEM Soccer is an eight (8) module educational enrichment program that comes complete with worksheets and aligns with Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core State Standards. Each STEM Soccer kit includes a teacher’s manual -- that is easily administered -- and all of the reusable sporting and science equipment in order for the program to be fully implemented. Although specifically composed for grades 3-6, the program is constructed with flexibility in mind as it can be scaled and taught to older student groups and in a variety of settings, i.e. in-school, after-school programs and in camp settings.
It's recommended that each STEM Soccer Kit serve 12 students or six pairs of students. Kits can be used numerous times.

Frequently Asked Questions:
- How many students does each kit serve?
It's recommended that each kit serve 12 students, or 6 pairs of students.
- How long does each Kit last?
No item in any STEM Sports kit is perishable. Therefore, kits can be used numerous times over several years with normal wear and tear.
- How many total students can a single Kit serve over time?
Literally hundreds. Each of the eight lessons/modules is designed for groups of 12 students. If a classroom has 24 students, they would break up into two groups and the same lesson would be administered to all 24 students, simultaneously. If the entire kit was used in four different classrooms over the course of one-half of a school year, 96 students would be served or as many as 192 over the course of one year.
- What program format are Kits most effective in?
All STEM Sports programs are strategically designed for flexibility. This allows them to be implemented in a variety of settings. STEM Soccer is equally effective whether administered in traditional classrooms, after-school programs, summer camps, or weekend retreats.
- Who can teach the STEM Sports program?
STEM Soccer is strategically designed to allow anyone with a basic understanding of STEM principles to administer the program. Teacher manuals provide instructors with the the proper framework and tools to implement each lesson plan.
