Science in Action

Matt Bonner performs science experiments with Team Up Challenge students

San Antonio Spurs forward/center Matt Bonner spent an afternoon brushing up on his science skills as part of Edison High School's E=mc^2 Team Up Challenge project. The high schoolers are exploring careers available in the science field, and mentoring middle school students.

Matt assisted the students as they performed experiments in chemistry, biology and physics and helped explain what potential career paths they could pursue, including forensic science, car safety and zoology.

Ice Girl for a Day

Madison enjoyed rehearsals with the Ice Girls and performed with the group during a game

Madison Bookman got the chance to be an honorary Ice Girl and perform at a Rampage game on February 1, 2013  as part of the "Ice Girl for a Day" auction package. 

The week before the performance Madison went to an Ice Girls rehearsal to learn her routine and some great dance tips. The day of the game, Madison experienced all of the pre-game Ice Girls activities, including getting her hair and makeup done, greeting fans as they entered the arena and more.

After the game Madison said, "I had so much fun, I want to do it again!"

Team Up Challenge Scholars

On February 2, the Team Up Challenge Scholars were recognized on court during halftime of a Spurs game. The Team Up Challenge Scholars program, presented by AT&T, pairs college mentors with each of the 20 Team Up Challenge semi-finalists to assist the students in planning and executing their service projects.

The Scholars also serve as role models for the students and take them on tours of their college campuses, demonstrating the message that college is an opportunity for any student in San Antonio. To learn more about the Team Up Challenge Scholars program, including how to apply, visit
