Access and achievement gaps in STEM education remain a persistent challenge.

Our approach to closing these gaps is based on two truths. More engaged students will achieve at higher rates. Achievement in middle school math predicts the likelihood of high school graduation.

During this critical time for STEM learning and careers, our unique approach reignites students’ passion for learning.

We bring a fresh perspective.

"This is a phenomenal program with too many benefits to name."

- Utah Educator

"Because of NBA Math Hoops, my student now wants to finish high school and attend college because he knows that he can do it after competing against other kids."

- Ohio Educator

"After yesterday’s meeting he came up to me and said he never thought he would be staying after school to do math, but NBA Math Hoops enabled him to have fun while learning. At the beginning of the year the student struggled with multiplication. Now he knows all of his facts."

- North Carolina Educator

"I run a tutoring business that partners with a lot of organizations and schools and we basically used it whenever and wherever we could because the students (and adults) loved it so much. I've never seen kids so enthusiastic and engaged with math."

- Pennsylvania Educator

"As they worked together, my students’ behavior began to change for the better. They became more cooperative and also more confident. Their math skills then began to improve as they played each game."

- California Educator
