With this partnership, Binovi is teaming up with an already strong group in STEM Sports® to develop an important set of skills that often go overlooked. We’re excited for how Jeff and his team will be able to improve the lives —in the classroom, on the field, and in everyday life— of these young minds.”

“We have and will continue to collaborate with partners that see the value in investing in the education of today’s students so that they can enhance the future workforce.

There has been a significant influx of capital and concentration of efforts in STEM-related efforts, with grants from Disney putting $200,000 (NYSE: DIS) into STEM programs in central Florida, tire manufacturing giants Goodyear celebrating 20 years of STEM education investment (NASDAQ: GT) and Bridgestone continuing their investment in a STEM-focused automotive training program (OTC US: BRDCY) STEM-based automotive training programs at local colleges, and partnering with NFL star Larry Fitzgerald’s First Down Fund to provide underserved youth with the technology they need to facilitate their education.
“Using athletics as a vehicle for learning is a powerful way to instill real-life skills into young minds that will drive them to succeed both in the game and in life. By joining forces with STEM Sports®, we aim to open their student athletes’ eyes to these new skills, as well as tools to promote skill advancement and performance improvement that will serve them in the same way now and throughout their lives.”
