More than 1,000 girl scouts learned the science of baseball at the Frisco RoughRiders’ Dr Pepper Ballpark Saturday.
The second annual Covering the Bases of STEM program encourages students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math education.
From the kinetic energy of a 90 mph pitch to the aerodynamics of a baseball swing, the girls from Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas participated in hands-on STEM activities with a baseball theme. They also measured the pH level of the Choctaw Lazy River, learned scorecard math, proper fitness, and the science behind a pop fly.
As part of the event, the girls marched on the field before the RoughRiders April 8 game, watched a movie on the field, and spend the night in the stadium.
