In 2016, USA Volleyball became the second Olympic sport to sanction the STEM Sports program. This engaging educational enrichment program includes an eight (8) module curriculum that is equal parts education, athletics, and exercise. Rooted in Next Generation Science Standards, the STEM Sports Volleyball program is flexible and can be implemented in a classroom setting, through after-school enrichment programs, or within a summer camp model. This program was designed for grades 5-8 but depending on the environment, could be used for older or younger student groups.
Participating students receive a STEM education while simultaneously learning the science behind the sport of volleyball. Curriculum modules include such topics as the calculating total contact time and optimal serve speed. Additionally, each student has access to a volleyball-themed kit consisting of a teacher manual, sporting equipment, and other necessary items for teachers to properly implement the program.
It's recommended that each STEM Volleyball kit serve no more than 12 students or six pairs of students. Kits can be used numerous times. In addition to the teacher manual, a single volleyball kit includes six (6) Molten First Touch volleyballs, six (6) Molten Soft Touch volleyballs, six (6) Molten Camp volleyballs, and one (1) P&G Inflatable GO PLAY! ball.
