Pat Burke, former NBA player and owner of HOOPS Basketball Training Facility, spoke with fourth and fifth grade students at Astatula Elementary recently about hard work, believing in yourself and the importance of teamwork. His visit was inspired by one of Burke’s HOOPS Life players. Jordan, a fifth-grader, interviewed Burke for a school-wide STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) poster project entitled, “How does STEAM relate to your future career?” Here are Burke’s answers:
Science: basketball, air pressure, shoes, surface friction
Technology: video highlights, scoreboard, shooting machine
Engineering: arena’s stadium seating capacity and safety
Arts: human form, signature moves, dunks
Math: statistics, regulations, measurements, height of the goal, length of the court, free-throw line
Astatula Elementary sends a huge “Thank You” to Pat Burke for bringing a real-world learning experience to life for our students.
