Students participate in annual ‘Teamwork Makes The Dream Work’ event
LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Students of all ages attended the eighth annual teamwork makes the dreamwork event on Sunday, Jan. 14.
The theme was Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, otherwise knowns STEM and sports. Children who attended had the opportunity to learn different math and science terminology that correlated with sports like basketball and golf.
With help from Cameron University coaches and students, the children were able to see how math trajectory, Newtons law of motion and gravity all paired with different sports.
The event coordinator, Kimberly Jones wants to make sure that kids understand the importance of stem education.
“I think STEM and sports is a winning combination for our students because since they’re already doing it,” Jones said. “It’s an everyday thing they are doing anyways, so it’s very good that they understand the concepts that belong with it.”
Students were encouraged to enroll into classes that can help them get more engaged in STEM. Events like STEM and sports are held to give kids helpful information inside and out of the classrooms.
