Current events have made it clear that igniting passion in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics is a global priority.
Since its founding in 2017, the Sport and STEM Alliance has grown in number and significance, providing a platform to educate the wider community on how sport is also playing a game-changing role in the STEM education crisis. By leveraging sport’s appeal and its success in engaging young people around the world – including through Alliance member efforts – we are working to open minds to the exciting opportunities within the STEM fields.
Supported by $10,000 funding, this year the Alliance is creating solutions on how to use sport to better support some of STEM's most important advocates: The Educators. Join the Alliance to collaborate on strategies for the Educating the Educators focus topic while also furthering conversations on Gender Equality – Girls in STEM and Hard to Reach Populations.
As Founding Members and Strategic Partners, Beyond Sport and the San Francisco 49ers Foundation have taken a leading role in the vision and mission of the Alliance.
Member organizations include: ESPN, EVERFI, Learn Fresh, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, MANTA Sailing, MLB, NBA/WNBA, NHL, North Melbourne F.C., NYU, Sphero Sports, STEM Sports, TGR Foundation - a Tiger Woods Charity and UNICEF USA.
