Students and Their Families Invited to Discover STEM Connections to Sports, Explore Careers, Have Fun, Make Connections for Continuing Learning and Growth
CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Cavaliers today announced that the team has chosen the NeoSTEM Ecosystem to lead its STEM Day programming planned for March 19 at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland.
Elementary and middle school students and their families from Northeast Ohio communities will be invited to attend the day of fun STEM-focused learning events followed by a great night at the FieldHouse watching the Cavaliers take on the Detroit Pistons.
NeoSTEM, a collaboration of more than 50 organizations from Northeast Ohio, works to improve STEM educational opportunities for all students in the region, with a concentration on underserved students of Color.
NeoSTEM and its partners are planning a day of fun STEM learning events designed to show the intersections of science, technology, engineering and math with sports. STEM Day will also give students and their families information about how to engage in meaningful after-school STEM, long after STEM Day ends.
“NeoSTEM was chosen as our partner to plan and lead STEM Day because of its strong partnerships with organizations that are on the front lines of working with students and their families,” said Melanie Seiser, Senior Director with the Cleveland Cavaliers. “We want STEM Day to be the catalyst that opens students’ eyes to the many opportunities that STEM offers, including careers that can change their lives.”
Among its work to improve STEM learning opportunities for all, NeoSTEM is partnering with several organizations, including MyCom, DigitalC and others, to bring meaningful STEM programming to students and families in underserved neighborhoods throughout the Cleveland metropolitan area.
