Summary

#STEAM49ers

Learn how the 49ers STEM Education Program provides 60,000 K-8 Bay Area students each year with an interdisciplinary facilitation of STEM. The program, which emphasizes problem solving, critical thinking and other 21st Century life skills, leverages project-based learning (PBL) in the curricula, where students learn to understand STEM using relevant experiences. By using football as a learning platform in an informal education setting, the 49ers have been able to create relevancy and develop scenario-based activities that provide opportunities for students to learn how to take initiative and responsibility, build their confidence and solve problems in teams.
