Future Goals

The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) and the National Hockey League (NHL) have partnered to launch the Future Goals program, a North-American initiative that provides students with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education opportunities. The program brings cutting-edge, digital learning opportunities into classrooms at no cost, and prepares today’s students to be the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.

Hockey Scholar is a new course launched as part of the Future Goals Program that leverages highly interactive gameplay and the sport of hockey to teach students to important Science, Technology Engineering and Math concepts. The course utilizes an exploratory learning approach, exposing students to foundational STEM concepts, scientific thinking and data/graphical analysis through real-life STEM applications.
