ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos Tackle STEM program, in partnership with EVRAZ, Lightning eMotors, Ranger Energy Services and Logitix, are presenting a grant to the Centaurus High School (Lafayette, Colo.) Physics Club on National STEM Day.
The Centaurus High School Physics Club was selected to be honored after winning a STEM competition in 2020, where the club researched and sampled the mesosphere, an upper layer of Earth's atmosphere.
The grant will be presented to the students on Monday, Nov. 8 by Miles the Mascot and Denver Broncos Cheerleaders.
"Science, technology, engineering and mathematics continue to change the landscape of sports and the industries in which many of our corporate partners operate," said Brady Kellogg, Broncos Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships. "Through our Broncos Tackle STEM program and with the support of partners, we are able to encourage and champion this type of exploration to be at the forefront of innovation. We would like to congratulate the Centaurus High School Physics Club and the scientists who have generously given their time to support these students in Broncos Country."
The grant presentation is the first of a series of STEM recognition programs that is scheduled for the 2021 season.
The Broncos Tackle STEM program is a corporate partnership-led initiative that began in 2016. The program recognizes outstanding STEM students and research, while encouraging exploration within STEM fields.
