COURT SCIENCE CLASSROOM TAKES ANALYTICS TO THE NEXT LEVEL THROUGH STEM

The goal of the Court Science Classroom is to teach basketball analytics through S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Court Science Classroom takes place during the NBA Summer League, in partnership with 4th Family, a non-profit organization. Subsequent follow-up seminars and workshops take place throughout the school year.

Tomorrow’s Stars Foundation partnered with the 4th Family Foundation to launch Court Science Classroom, a hands-on sport science & analytics program featuring science, technology, engineering, and math (S.T.E.M.) to study basketball performance and analyze players and teams at the 2019 NBA Summer League.

Sixteen Summer League Jr. NBA student-athletes will attend a four-day, all inclusive, classroom program.

Court Science Classroom students will meet with NBA players, coaches, and NBA S.T.E.M. professionals to learn how S.T.E.M. underpins player and franchise performance in the NBA. Participant’s academic progress is followed throughout the school year.

HOW WE ARE CREATING CHANGE

The Court Science Classroom is helping create change by:

  • Responding to a clear education and employment gap of urban youth in the S.T.E.M. disciplines.

  • Connecting at-risk youth with the opportunity and motivation to seek further education and potential career in a S.T.E.M. field.

  • Providing concrete, accessible S.T.E.M. material through hands on seminars and mentoring programs throughout the school year.

  • Creating partnerships with local S.T.E.M. professionals and Clark County School District teachers and administrators.

  • Expanding learning beyond the classroom through ongoing after-school seminars.

  • Engaging targeted youth participation in the Court Science Classroom summer program ensuring students have the time to delve deeply in to topics of interest, expand the pool of resources available during the NBA Summer League, and sustaining student learning after the school year ends.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE COURT SCIENCE ACADEMY CLASSROOM

“USING BASKETBALL ANALYTICS TO TEACH MATH AND SCIENCE…WHAT A CONCEPT!

The partnership with Tomorrow’s Stars has allowed us to collaborate and develop the Court Science Classroom like never before. Our research shows that if you can present the curriculum in an environment the kids enjoy and relate it to a topic they are interested in, the results are off the charts!
