First Green uses golf courses as real-life learning laboratories for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. Teachers and students come to the golf course where superintendents demonstrate their STEM and environmental knowledge about wildlife habitat, soils, water quality, plant selection and more. Equipment managers can get in on the action and demonstrate technical skills and use of practical math involved with golf course maintenance. Cathy Relyea and Karen Armstead, Ph.D., help you learn how you can get involved, teach STEM skills, and let students know about your career path during this 90-minute webinar, part of our EM series.
