Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics
With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.
Ace Kids Golf uses an iPad filled with engaging STEM curriculum donated by Sticks for Kids, USGA, and Chevron Birdies for Education. We use the iPad to educate our youth in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics. Through fun and engaging activities, students learn about Newton’s law, physics and the evolution of the golf ball and golf clubs.
Tees for Bees
In collaboration with the Pollinator Posse, NCGA Youth on Course, World Wildlife Federation and Oaklandish, we created an event to introduce youth to the pollination process of bees and butterflies. Using seed balls from local clay, soil and wild flower seeds, Ace Kids Golf participants and community volunteers launch seed balls into the air, spreading seeds across the open spaces of the Lake Chabot Golf Course. This event includes golf clinics, science demonstrations, food and fun for the entire family.
Chevron STEM Zone
In Collaboration with the Monterey Peninsula Foundation and the PGA Pure Insurance Championship, we will be chaperoning 50 Oakland youth to the Pure Insurance Championship. Participants will be served lunch, experience the STEM Zone for an hour and will be granted access at no charge to attend the golf tournament. This is a great opportunity for youth to be exposed to STEM and experience a professional golf event.
