Science of Sports Science Fair

Three middle school boys prove their hypothesis – showing the science of sports

Raytheon Company and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation annually host the "Science of Sports" science fair at Gillette Stadium. This science fair is the culmination of a four-month program, which involves more than 80 Raytheon employee volunteers. Volunteers make weekly visits to the Boys & Girls Clubs across New England to help imagine and execute projects that explore math or science through sports.

The competing teams present their projects to a panel of judges, including New England Patriots' Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. Each member of the winning team receives a $1,000 scholarship provided by Raytheon and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation. Second place winners receive $750 scholarships and third place winners receive $500 scholarships.
