Helping make a positive difference in the lives of young Detroiters, the Detroit Red Wings are bringing STEM education into the homes of hundreds of Detroit Public Schools Community District students through Virtual STEM Days, driven by Chevrolet, from May 17–21.
Through this annual program, which focuses on Science, Technology, Education and Math, Red Wings-themed STEM kits are being delivered to three local schools: Clippert Multicultural Magnet Honors Academy; Bethune Elementary-Middle School; and Ronald Brown Academy.
Each kit contains hockey-related items that help bring STEM concepts to life, including a STEM-branded “make-a-rink” lab, hockey pucks and a ruler where students see how temperature affects puck movement.
“In collaboration with Chevrolet, the Virtual STEM Day program brings hockey-based educational concepts to kids in a new and interactive way,” said Kevin Brown, Red Wings and Tigers director of community impact. “We believe children can learn and grow through these types of educational opportunities and look forward to bringing additional youth sports, education and wellness programs to our community.”
The STEM curriculum is part of the Red Wings’ Future Goals Program, designed to create fun and memorable learning experiences for children across Detroit.
