Last year, we followed Indycar driver Zach Veach as he promoted the importance of STEM subjects to students at racetracks.

Recently, Veach was at it again in Chicago, launching a national education initiative from EVERFI and Group1001. But this time around, he brought his friends, NFL linebacker Corey Mays and WNBA forward Devereaux Peters.

Together, the trio spent the day at Henderson Elementary School, playing games and introducing students to the Endeavor program, a digital STEM curriculum created by EVERFI and Group1001.

The Endeavor program uses gamified courses to bring hands-on STEM lessons to classrooms nationwide and inspire the next generation of engineers.

It’s critical we equip young people with STEM skills and inspire educational pathways to careers in these growing fields.

With eighty percent of the nation’s fastest-growing careers requiring skills from one or more STEM fields, Group1001 and EVERFI hope to spark curiosity in STEM skills and professions.

With the Endeavor program and support from professional athletes, they’re moving full STEM ahead.
