Bringing the Blues to STEM lessons

Two St. Louis Blues players and team mascot Louie brought a STEM lesson to Parkway Northeast Middle students with a game of hockey.

Blues players Robert Bortuzzo and Zach Sanford visited the school with an assist from the Hockey Scholar course. The Future Goals: Hockey Scholar program reinforces math and science concepts by highlighting their real-world applications in the sport of hockey.

Hands-on clinic drills throughout the day were also provided by the Street Blues, a free ball hockey program initiated by the Blues aimed toward getting elementary and middle school-aged children interested in the game of hockey. This program offers area schools a PE class curriculum and after-school activity that is a fast-paced alternative to traditional PE class units.

During the visit to Northeast Middle, the players also visited the computer lab to watch students engage in further STEM lessons.
