The Florida Panthers welcomed OVER 3,000 accomplished Hockey Scholar students for this year’s Florida Panther STEM Day field trip at the BB&T center. Of that number, 77 students from Hialeah Gardens Middle School achieved the honor of attending. In order to attend this event, each student had to complete the EverFI Future Hockey Goals Math or Science Online Course. Individuals who work for the Panthers’ Franchise spoke to the students about the relationship of their jobs to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM.) The Panthers’ Social Media Coordinator, Ice Manager, Equipment Manager and Jet Blue Pilot for the team all spoke about their current jobs and education. After the presentations, everyone was treated to a mini hockey game and practice session as the Florida Panthers prepared for their upcoming contest against the Vancouver Canucks.
Anita Scott, Hialeah Gardens Middle School Business Education Teacher and FBLA Advisor stated about the field trip, “All the students came back wanting a job with the Panthers!”
