The Amazin’ Mets Foundation teams up with Citrin Cooperman and Learn Fresh for Math Hits, a program designed to build on students’ love of baseball to further their education and broaden their math and STEM-related skills. Students from local Queens schools and after school programs take part in a variety of activities that teach children preparation tips for success in school and in their future careers, as well as an interactive Math Hits tournament which incorporates math principles and baseball.
Math Hits encourages and rewards sportsmanship – promoting fairness, respecting opponents, and staying positive win or lose – resulting in a comprehensive experience for all.
On May 3, the Mets will visit fourth and fifth graders from P.S. 116 in Queens to play the Math Hits board game alongside Mr. Met.
