STEM Interactive Gallery sponsored by SaskTel now available as a virtual tour

The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame’s new STEM Interactive Gallery sponsored by SaskTel is now available to explore as a virtual tour.

The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Interactive Gallery features a series of  “how-to” and “experimental” videos related to each aspect of STEM and is tailored towards visitors between 4-16 years of age. This gallery and virtual tour promotes activities that can be easily done at home while learning about the connection of sport to science, technology, engineering, and math.

Visitors to the STEM Interactive Gallery can test their vertical jump, their balance, their strength, their standing long jump, their flexibility, and their grip strength while also learning about some of the ways Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math are changing the sporting world.

STEM has been a growing field in schools for many years. While these topics can feel sedentary, the STEM Interactive Gallery allows students to mix learning with physical activity.

The STEM Interactive Gallery also helps bring some of the accomplishments of our SSHF inductees to life through to-scale measurements.

The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame gratefully thanks the SaskTel Community Investment Program for their sponsorship of the STEM Interactive Gallery virtual tour.

In partnership with White Rabbit VR in Regina, this is the fourth virtual tour that has captured an exhibit at the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. Our current featured exhibit – the national award-winning Prairie Pride: A History of Saskatchewan Football is available online as is Dedication to Sport: Our 2019 Inductees which celebrates our latest induction class.

Our first virtual tour from 2018, Diamond Girls’ Diamond Anniversary: 75 Years of the AAGPBL, also remains available to explore.

New virtual tour features 2019 Induction Class

Dedication to Sport: Our 2019 Inductees is the newest exhibit to become a virtual tour.

Dedication to Sport opened in September of 2019 on the occasion of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame’s 52nd Induction Ceremony and Dinner. The 2019 Induction Class featured Chris Biegler (basketball), Wendel Clark (hockey), Jacki Nichol (softball), Kelly Parker (soccer), Marg [Curry] Sihvon (basketball) and Colleen Sostorics (hockey) as well as builders Clarence Campbell (hockey) and Bill Kinash (cycling) to the Hall of Fame.

This exhibit features artifacts, photos and stories from each of those inductees. While the exhibit is intended to last for one year, the 2019 Class graciously allowed the Hall of Fame to continue to display their collections after the COVID-19 pandemic prevented the induction of a new in class in 2020.

Our Dedication to Sport virtual tour features the induction video from each member of the 2019 Induction Class at the base of their display. Additional stories and descriptions are available by clicking on the round tags that accompany the tour.

In partnership with White Rabbit VR in Regina, this is the third virtual tour that has captured an exhibit at the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. Our current featured exhibit Prairie Pride: A History of Saskatchewan Football is available online.

Our first virtual tour from 2018, Diamond Girls’ Diamond Anniversary: 75 Years of the AAGPBL, also remains available to explore.
