Science, math, engineering…and baseball?

The Diamondbacks Science of Baseball program has teamed up with Arizona Virtual Academy to showcase how science and math work in baseball during the MLB Arizona Fall League Championship Game 12-4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21 at the Scottsdale Stadium.

This event is a part of the D-Back’s Science of Baseball curriculum, which inspires students and community members to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through the practical application of baseball concepts, according to a press release.

At the event, AZVA teachers will lead in-person activities that explore concepts like batter reaction time and elasticity.

Not only will visitors get to participate in fun interactive activities, but STEM clubs like Robotics Club and Paper Electronics will also be able to share their projects with all visitors.

“Baseball helps students of all ages understand subjects like math and science in a way they’ve never experienced before,” stated Banjjan Judge, AZVA community liaison, in the release. “This program aims to encourage STEM learning for both our students and Scottsdale community members.”

Fall League Baseball features top prospects from all the MLB teams, and the season culminates on Nov. 21 at the Championship Game. The game starts at 1:08 p.m., and tickets can be purchased day of at the Gate B box office.
