Showing students how science, technology, engineering and math impact every-day living helps them become better aware of how science is all around them. Devon and the Oklahoma City Thunder have partnered to offer a program to encourage young people to engage in STEM activities that explore the science behind basketball. Activities explore such topics as the mathematics behind free-throw shooting, how reaction times impact success on the court and the use of technology that helps players improve their game. Students will complete science experiments and other challenges to receive special recognition by the Thunder.
