On Monday, March 20, Broad Meadows 8th graders had an awesome day visiting Gillette Stadium!

Students explored the Patriots Hall of Fame presented by Raytheon Technologies and participated in the "Build a Team" STEM exercise, in which students serve as the simulated management team of a new NFL franchise. Equipped with actual NFL statistics and a proposed budget, students analyzed player attributes and salaries to assemble a winning team!

It was a great day of honing STEM skills and learning more about the history of the Patriots and the stadium. Thank you to Broad Meadows staff and our friends at Gillette for providing this opportunity to our students!
