Summer Education Programs

Online Edition

BASEBALL & STEM : Mondays @ 11am
Inspired by the extraordinary life, athleticism and values of Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra, our online STEM program gets kids up and moving as they explore ways in which baseball demonstrates important concepts in science, technology, engineering and math.

This online program explores DISCOVER GREATNESS: An Illustrated History of Negro Leagues Baseball, on loan from the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. Students will learn about Jim Crow, the Great Migration and their connection to the birth and growth of the Negro Leagues, and think critically about larger, ongoing issues of systemic racism and social injustice.
