THE CONVERSATION CONTINUES...
Hosted by the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation at the iconic Dodger Stadium, our third installment of Beyond Innovation advanced the conversation on sport's role in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. We convened executives from across the sports, tech, government and education sectors to inspire cross-sector partnerships and innovative solutions to the world's most pressing social issues in support of the UN Global Goals (SDGs).
The event featured a stimulating program of world class speakers, live interactive programming on Dodger field, roundtable workshops and a networking reception.
Members of the Sport & STEM Alliance, founded by Beyond Sport, the San Francisco 49ers Foundation and Chevron, gathered prior to Innovation for an interactive working session at the TGR Learning Lab, run by TGR Foundation - a Tiger Wood's Charity.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14
- Sport & STEM Alliance year-end convening | TGR Learning Lab, Anaheim, CA | 9:00am - 1:00pm
During the Forum, Alliance members became students as they took part in a STEM exploration activity, the Space Lunar Landing Challenge. Through a guided and team-based session, participants were fully hands-on applying the physics concepts of shock-absorption, drag forces and stability. Using enhanced problem solving, critical thinking and innovation skills, teams built a space lander and then demonstrated their designs.
Then they came together to decide on the key issues that will become the focus of the Alliance's work in 2020 - bringing insights of their discussion to Beyond Innovation the next day.
