October 23 – LA Galaxy and Southern New Hampshire University are launching their first week-long Galaxy STEAM programme at the StubHub Center with the aim of improving the educational experience of 250 local middle-schoolers across Los Angeles.
The STEAM programme was created by the LA Galaxy Academy in conjunction with SNHU, and will provide sixth- to eighth-grade students with a means of improving their academic performance through hands-on experiential learning and soccer-based lesson plans.
The LA Galaxy STEAM curriculum was created by SNHU faculty in accordance with California state standards for math and science.
The classes will include lesson plans such as ‘technology and the various states of a soccer ball’, ‘the math behind scoring a goal’, ‘nutrition and your lives on the field’, and a ‘soccer design challenge’.
250 local Los Angeles middle school students (50 each day) will participate in the week of activity which will also involve engagement with LA Galaxy players.
