DESCRIPTION: The Dallas Mavericks Science of Basketball
presented by Flowserve aims to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through basketball examples.  Developed by Science of Sport, the program involves standards-based curriculum for 5th and 6th grade teachers and hands-on camps for students and teachers. The 30 selected Physical Education, Math and Science teachers from 10 Dallas ISD schools went through Teacher Training in January at the Mavericks practice facility and received a complete Science of Basketball Kit which included all of the classroom materials and sporting equipment needed to implement the program at the school.  Students from the 10 Dallas ISD schools have been invited to show-off what they’ve learned in the classroom on the Mavs Practice Court on March 21st at 4 p.m.  Current Dallas Maverick Dwight Powell and Mavs Legend Rolando Blackman will stop by to meet the students and help demonstrate basketball examples on the court.
