Yuma AZ - Gadsden Elementary School District is using baseball to spike student interest in math, science, technology and engineering.

The district was awarded the stem baseball club pilot program for summer 2012.

The purpose of this pilot program is to create a partnership with the Arizona Diamondbacks and use baseball as a way to get students interested in learning about the STEM (science technology engineering and mathematics) disciplines.

The program is also to use baseball as a way to increase student achievement outcomes and positive student behaviors through participation.    

Students from grades 3-6, teachers, and coordinators who participate in the summer pilot program will be attending the D-backs game on Friday, June 22.

The game will take place in Phoenix, Arizona at the Chase Field stadium starting at 6:40p.m.

Gadsden elementary school district/transportation department will be providing transportation for approximately 500 students and parents. 

Students, parents, and staff members are looking forward for this great opportunity.
