INNOVATION EDUCATION LAB
In The ARENA, student-athletes explore connections between skills learned in sports and stem. We nurture innovative mindsets and encourage student-athletes to think creatively. You develop soft skills that are transferrable from the classroom to the court, to careers!
YOU engage in…
