Sports are so much more than what's happening on the field, on the court, or on the ice. From player performance and safety to marketing to the fan experience, behind nearly every decision is a data scientist crunching the numbers to determine the best outcome. Data and analytics is one of the most in-demand jobs in our economy and these women and men are using their STEM skills to change the game. This panel demonstrates how a STEM education can be used in nearly every profession.
