STEAM FC presented by NEC is an educational field trip program developed in partnership among the FC Dallas Foundation, Frisco Independent School District and the National Soccer Hall of Fame. The program teaches sixth grade students the real-world application of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) through the lens of soccer.


Field Trips

STEAM FC is available in two formats: in-person and virtual. Dates are available Monday-Thursday throughout the school year to schedule a trip.

Our field trip program offers hands-on learning in a unique environment that provides one-of-a-kind opportunities for students. The program consists of four stations, each of which highlights STEAM principles, relating to soccer.

Classroom Lesson

Schools participating in the program select the lesson taught in our classroom.

  • Fútbol Physics Breakout – Students work to break the FC Dallas players out of their locker room by solving puzzles involving physics to find the five codes to release them.
  • Pitching the Pitch – After viewing a FC Dallas commercial, students work within a budget to create their own commercial.
  • Score a Career in Sports! – In groups of four, students pick from four available career options and work together to put on a FC Dallas theme night.

Movement Lab

The movement lab focuses on the importance of heart rate in exercise. Students can get active while learning how professional athletes use science and technology to reach peak performance.

National Soccer Hall of Fame Tour

The National Soccer Hall of Fame at Toyota Stadium utilizes technology in creative and innovative ways. From gesture technology to algorithms and facial recognition technology, this module highlights how all of this is used and why it’s responsible for making this space the most personalized experience in sports.

Content is adjusted for a virtual trip.

Toyota Stadium Tour

This tour highlights several aspects of Toyota Stadium. Students get behind-the-scenes access to gain a full understanding of the extent of STEAM principles utilized in soccer.

STEAM FC’s classroom lessons were developed in conjunction with Frisco Independent School District and were created to be in line with the state standard, TEKS. We focus on critical thinking and problem solving while promoting creativity and teamwork. We take a holistic approach that connects science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics to the real world, soccer in particular, in ways that students might not consider.
