Not your 80s gym class: Reframing Physical Education as a vessel for STEM learning


This study takes a look at how integrating STEM lessons and concepts into physical education effects participation. Adding a new perspective on a class that students either love or hate reinvigorates learning and invites students to approach PE as a student-athlete instead of just an athlete or non-athlete. Math and engineering lessons were woven into activities and games to spark the scientist in all of us and problem-solve familiar problems with a new lens.
