This is a news release from Tulane

Students at Tulane’s Mississippi Coast Campus served as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Zone instructors during last week’s Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic. The STEM Zone is an interactive exhibit that travels around the world to several golf competitions and allows young students to participate in a variety of educational experiments and activities.
 
The STEM Zone was created by the United States Golf Association (USGA) as an experience to demonstrate the science behind the game of golf. Numerous Tulane students used everyday occurrences like the weather, basic science principles and of course, golf, to teach students about the science, technology, engineering and math of golf. Young visitors learned about calculating the diameter of a golf ball, the importance of a golf ball’s dimple count and the significance of aerodynamics and friction relating to golf.
 
This was the second consecutive year that Tulane students have served as STEM instructors at the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic, and this year’s students manned exhibits that showed the concept of reaction time and Bernoulli’s principle.
