Cheerleaders Bring Science To Super Bowl

Here is an amazing event happening today at ASU,  that brings together women and science. The ASU Center for Engagement & Training in Science & Society and the Arizona Science Center will be working with the Science Cheerleaders, January 30 by bringing science to the thousands of football fans in town for the Super Bowl.  The Science Cheerleaders are a group of former and current professional cheerleaders who are currently pursuing careers in the STEM industry. Just check out their video below.

 

Join this group of intelligent women at the Arizona Science Center today from 11:00am- 4:00pm, as they show us the science that goes behind today’s football technology. These lovely ladies have been breaking gender stereotypes not only in the STEM world but those also associated with being professional Cheerleaders. By sharing their experiences nationwide at events like this, they bring awareness to the growth of women in the STEM industry.

Besides meeting the Cheerleaders, visitors can learn about the new technological advancements happening with today’s athletic saftey equipment. Experience hands on activities designed to put you in the shoes of an engineer. The event is sponsored by VICIS, a Seattle-based company working on a helmet that helps reduce concussions.
