The following Advocate member partners of NAA offer a variety of products, programs, curriculum, and technology tools specifically designed with afterschool programs and professionals in mind.
STEM Sports® creates and provides turnkey K-8 educational curriculum that combines STEM disciplines with a variety of sports. We deliver authentic engagement opportunities to students and youth by using BMX, basketball, football, soccer, and volleyball as the strategic vehicles to drive STEM-based learning in classrooms, after-school programs, and camps. As a result, students and youths develop critical thinking, collaboration, creative problem-solving, and leadership skills that can be applied throughout their education and future careers. Just as importantly, physical activity and participation are vital components of our student-led curricula. Our double-play combination of cognitive thinking and physical activity provides a comprehensive and inquiry-based educational experience and a solution for crucial STEM literacy for students. Aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards, our curricula will cultivate and promote participants' STEM engagement and retention. STEM Sports® provides all of the necessary and relevant sports equipment along with the entire list of supplies called for in the teacher/administer manual and all of the items have a long-lasting shelf life.
