Swing into a great educational course with our STEM Golf supplemental curriculum. If your students are having a rough time learning traditional STEM skills, approach our program with our partner PGA TOUR Tee-Up and their outstanding golf equipment. It is a fair way to develop young students’ drive to be better leaders and problem solvers.
The eight-lesson pace of STEM Golf bumps and runs through lessons such as:
- How the rotation of the earth causes a change in the atmosphere and hydrosphere, creating different climates across the globe and thus affecting a golf course and its grass.
- Gaining knowledge about gravity and/or gravitational force applied by the earth on objects directed down, which includes golf balls.
- Learning about distance and potential energy through the practice of swinging a club at different angles and speeds and thus swing radius.
- The composition of a golf ball which is often unknown yet unique, with an assist from Callaway Golf®. Students will learn why there are “dimples” on a ball and how they affect the flight and spin of the ball.
While the teacher or administrator of this supplemental curriculum will truly be a caddie to the youth in their gallery, these students will be able to attain lofty STEM learning goals while playing through STEM Golf.
