The First Tee STEMLinks Field Guide program is an extracurricular student learning experience that expands the educational opportunities offered through the First Tee National Schools program. The program has been developed to be conducted as one or more classroom field trips to a local, professionally-managed golf facility. The Field Guide links classroom learning objectives in science and math to real-world applications through hands-on exploration of a managed ecosystem.
The program’s learning objectives are based on students’ application of fifth-grade science and math standards. The field activities also introduce students to exciting opportunities in specific scientific fields relating to ecology, encouraging future exploration and discovery.
