49ers EDU Presented by Chevron Launch the STEAM Virtual Lesson Series
49ers EDU presented by Chevron launched a new Virtual Lesson Series accessible online and perfect for any K-8 students or teachers interested in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). To remove any barriers of access, 49ers EDU – the 49ers Foundation’s award-winning educational program – provides all programming, including this Virtual Lesson Series, completely free of cost to the end-user.
This newly launched Virtual Lesson Series is an extension of the regular 49ers EDU in-person programming at Levi’s® Stadium, which has been completely halted since the beginning of the pandemic. In a normal year, 49ers EDU welcomes 60,000+ students to the “49ers EDU & Denise DeBartolo York Education Center” – located within the 49ers Museum presented by Foxconn Industrial Internet – for meaningful and relevant educational experiences that leverage football as a platform to connect, engage and inspire K-8 students and educators in STEAM. The Virtual Lesson Series hopes to spark interest in STEAM and continue to grow the next generation of STEAM professionals.
49ers EDU finished creating the Virtual Lesson Series in early 2021 and since then has been offering the lessons on an individual basis to educators across California. This process has provided an organic way for 49ers EDU to receive feedback directly from teachers, allowing the team to refine and enhance the content before this virtual launch. Since January, the Virtual Lesson Series has been used 41 times in 26 schools across nine counties.

49ers EDU Playbook Patrol Presented by CalHOPE
This past month, 49ers EDU and CalHOPE donated 1,000 49ers EDU Learning Playbooks to the Alameda County Library, reaching four different library locations across Fremont, San Lorenzo, Castro Valley and Union City.
By distributing these playbooks, CalHOPE and 49ers EDU have brought STEAM enrichment opportunities to communities with less access to digital resources. Using football to engage students in STEAM concepts, the playbook allows students to explore STEAM outside of the school setting fueling students' interests while simultaneously equipping parents and teachers to foster the next generation of leaders.
49ers EDU presented by Chevron leverages the game of football and Levi’s Stadium as platforms to excite children about STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) concepts, sparking and fueling an interest in these subjects with students at an early age. 49ers EDU is steadfast in its commitment to serving students, teachers, and families—especially those furthest from resource and opportunity—to ensure our community's future workforce will be prepared through high quality and fun STEAM education.
