TORONTO, ON – November 10, 2014 – Cisco Canada today announced the launch of I CAN Learn. I CAN Learn is a free, dynamic classroom program that leverages athletes, experts, technology and the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games to bring to life a curriculum that teaches STEM concepts through sport.

I CAN Learn was designed to get students excited about math and science and expose them to careers in the field of STEM. The program, aimed at grade 7 students across Canada, will include student and teacher resource books, videos and virtual field trips to create an engaging classroom experience that teaches students the math and science behind sport.

Students will benefit from engaging directly with the experts that are tasked with bringing the Games to life, from architects and engineers to sports medicine experts, and the inspiring athletes that are striving to achieve their highest potential. Students will also get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating one of the world’s largest international multi-sport games and explore the themes of STEM, high performance sport, venue construction, architecture and design, and technology in sport and career paths.

Cisco will host a sneak peek of the I CAN Learn program on December 1, 2014, at 2:00 pm with its first virtual field trip.
