Ed Source – Carolyn Jones

“The lesson is part of the 49ers Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math Education program, a free academic offering for K-8 teachers and their students that includes math and science lessons, teacher training and a field trip for students to the 49ers stadium and museum in Santa Clara. For schools within 75 miles of the stadium, the program also includes free transportation. The 49ers aren’t the only professional sports team in California that’s dedicated to science and math education. The Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Jose Sharks, Anaheim Ducks and Golden State Warriors also have math and science programs, using their respective sports as a way to enhance academics for their young fans.”(more)
