Learning Science Through Golf/STEM Education
Heinz History Center – May 2 through June 19

As part of the USGA’s ongoing commitment to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, and sharing these principles through the lens of golf, the USGA will debut its “Learning Science Through Golf” exhibit May 2 through June 19 at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh.

Multiple interactive stations demonstrate various elements of the game of golf, including equipment, aerodynamics and turfgrass, to help make the game more interesting to learn and play.

With an orientation toward school-aged kids, the Learning Science Through Golf exhibit will be highlighted by the following interactive stations:

·    Science: Agronomy – How different types of turf retain water
·    Technology: Aerodynamics – What determines a golf ball’s flight
·    Engineering: Friction and Spin – How motion affects the distance a golf ball travels
·    Math: Volume and Displacement – How a golf club’s volume is determined
