3. Football + Math
Working with Discovery Education and the NFLPA (National Football League Players Association), EA Sports created a complimentary version of its popular Madden video game series to help teachers explain STEM concepts to kids. Madden NFL: Football By the Numbers demonstrates the details of basic football plays, eventually tying in mathematics and science concepts, such as velocity and angles. Once a student has completed the lessons relating to the STEM concepts, they are prompted to use their knowledge to accomplish the correct play. The system also provides supplementary lesson plans that teachers can work through together with students, or assign to small groups, and additional educator resources to help get kids into the STEM game!
