Tulsa, Oklahoma female middle school students, Play Like a Girl staff, Academy Sports + Outdoors employees and brand ambassadors will take part in a Play Like a Girl Meet + Mentor day camp on Tuesday, June 29, 2021.

Zebco, a local fishing rod and reel manufacturer and product testing facility, will be transformed into a mentoring lab designed to encourage local girls in their STEM pursuits and create a diverse female STEM leadership pipeline.

Play Like a Girl staff, Academy employees and volunteers will accompany 15 Tulsa students through STEM-related and confidence-building activities centered around the design and testing of fishing reels, rods and accessories. Activities include:

  • Panel Discussion and Q&A featuring accomplished women in outdoors and STEM
  • STEM Mentoring Moment, an opportunity for students to meet and have a hands-on working session with women leaders in the design of fishing reels and rods
  • Confidence-building Activity Inspired by Play Like a Girl’s Curriculum, through which girls can learn SMART goal-setting from Play Like a Girl’s CEO Dr. Kimberly Clay
  • Outdoor Hike & Fishing Lesson with a former college athlete turned fishing guide

Play Like a Girl Meet + Mentor events are ongoing celebrations to shine a light on empowering women role models in an effort to inspire more girls to reach their full potential in sport and STEM.

Participating students will be featured in a three-part YouTube series showcased across Academy’s social channels this summer.

The next event will take place in Memphis on July 7, 2021.
