Developed by our STEM Educators with assistance from Otterbein University, we have created experiments with minimal materials for all students to be able to participate.
Students will be introduced to the basics of physical laws and laws of motion, that they can apply to their everyday lives and apply to sports that they interact with regularly. The main takeaways should be how STEM can help improve and be applied to aspects of sports, namely Roller Skating, Football, Soccer and everyday life.
In this video, our STEM Educators will reinforce the following subjects currently being taught in your classroom!
• Newton’s Laws of Motion
• Forces/Vectors/Gravity/Free Body Diagrams
• Motion/Parabolic Motion

Why our STEM Field Trips are SO Important
The Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle), the world’s largest non-profit research
and development organization with over 22,000 employees, located in Ohio funded 3,000 K-8 students
to attend 35 STEM programs at our two Columbus roller rinks. The students were surveyed before
the STEM presentation and students and teachers were both surveyed immediately after the STEM
presentation. The results showed an EXTREMELY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE from students and teachers
when attending the S.T.E.M. program. HERE ARE THE RESULTS:
