From the Super Bowl to the Science Center: Patriots Cheerleaders Encourage Pursuing "STEM" Careers

Patriots Cheerleaders participate in Science Cheerleader Pep Rally to encourage young girls to pursue their passions in both education and sports.

Rob Gronkowski, TE - New England’s All-Pro tight end did not play this summer and missed practice time this offseason to reported chest and leg injuries. Gronkowski may be the most important non-QB in the game today and will be key to helping Jimmy Garoppolo succeed in the first month.

The Patriots Cheerleaders weren't only performing on the sidelines during their trip to Arizona for Super Bowl XLIX. On Friday, January 31, Kelly, Melanie and Brittany B. visited the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix to participate in the Science Cheerleader Pep Rally. The pep rally included performances from local youth cheerleading squads as well as science cheers and chants and photo opportunities with the Patriots Cheerleaders. Current and former cheerleaders from several other NFL squads participated as well.

Science Cheerleader is an organization consisting of professional cheerleaders who have pursued careers in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM). The organization aims to inspire young girls to defy stereotypes and pursue a STEM career. Kelly, Melanie and Brittany B. love encouraging young girls to explore their interests. Having a career and dancing is both possible and manageable. While in Arizona, Kelly, Melanie and Brittany interviewed with NBC Nightly News to discuss their careers in science and dance.
