Description

The class is exploring different career paths in the Math and Science fields.  They are working on projects that allow them to explore various careers within the Math & Science fields.  In sports, there are a variety of careers that our students do not associate as integral parts of having a team succeed.  

We would like to connect our learning to possible careers and open our students eyes to a variety of careers.  We have many students that are interested in a variety of sports and love promoting their ideas.  We therefore want them to explore careers in sports marketing.
