PLANO, Texas, March 30, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Skyhawks Sports Academy and STEM Sports® have recently announced plans for their continued partnership. With a joint interest of empowering kids with the resources to develop their physical abilities and academic knowledge these two companies will begin their 3rd year of collaboration, Stack Sports announced today.
According to the U. S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at 17%. Despite this growth we continue to see mathematics and science scores for U.S. students lagging behind other developing countries. Skyhawks has extended its partnership with STEM Sports® to meet the needs of young students at their level and introduce STEM learning.
Skyhawks® Sports Academy powered by Stack Sports, the leading provider of youth sports programs for children 4 to 14 years old, will continue offering STEM Sports® programs across the country. These programs use a double-play combination of physical activity and cognitive thinking to enhance the STEM skills in participants and prepare them for future careers by promoting critical thinking, collaboration, creative problem-solving, and leadership. Skyhawks’ STEM Sports® programs are currently offered in 23 states across 125 locations/schools/franchises through in-person and virtual classrooms.
“Integrating STEM Sports® with Skyhawks programs has taken our camps to another level,” says Jason Frazier, President of Skyhawks Sports Academy. “We have received overwhelming positive responses not only from customers and coaches but also from our partnering organizations. There is a huge demand for STEM-based education programs, and we are excited to offer our Skyhawks families a dynamic sports camp experience that will have a lifelong impact on our participants.”
“Skyhawks is a fantastic partner for STEM Sports® which allows us to expand our unique STEM-based learning through various sports as an integral part of the educational experience for students across the country,” said Jeff Golner, President and CEO of STEM Sports®. “We look forward to continuing to make STEM-learning a fun experience for students while encouraging and engaging in healthy, physical activity.”
Skyhawks STEM Sports® programs include two formats designed to explore and apply different skills. The STEM Sports® format explores and teaches the technology, science, and innovation behind today’s most popular sports. The “STEM & Play” format combines traditional Skyhawks skill-based instruction with innovative STEM Sports® programs.
These programs are an integral part of learning that bridges the talent gap for future generations and provide a brighter future for athletes on and off the field.
