The Larks have teamed up with MDU Resources and Gateway to Science to bring STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to the baseball field. Together, we understand the importance of equipping youth with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence and comprehend information.

Every summer we make it our mission to recognize six all-star students who exhibit hard work, dedication, and a commitment to using STEM to serve their school and community. Students are nominated by their teacher for their love of learning. The winners are then carefully selected by MDU Resources and Gateway to Science.

In honor of their accomplishment, the Larks recognize each STEM All-Star during select home games throughout the season.

Each STEM All-Star receives the following:

  • Larks jersey (includes name on the back)
  • 4 Larks tickets to a select game
  • Story in the Larks game day program
  • On-field recognition and the chance to throw out the first pitch
  • A Gateway to Science One-Year Student Membership

Out of the six all-star students, ONE is selected as the STEM Super-Star.

The STEM Super-Star is recognized during STEM Education Night at the Ballpark on June 18, 2020.

The STEM Super-Star receives ALL of the above perks PLUS the following:

  • Personalized radio ad promoting their STEM achievements and STEM Education Night
  • Opportunity to display their STEM project(s) during the STEM Expo
  • Pizza Party at Gateway to Science
