(KPLR) - Sometimes is can be hard for a teacher to get the attention of the class for certain subjects.  But that wasn't the case for students at Parkway Central Middle School when members of the St. Louis Blues came armed with lessons.

Tuesday the Blues went to the school because of the Future Goals program for our business class.

It was anything but business class as usual for seventh period at Parkway Central Middle School.

Savannah Grasmick/8th Grade Studen:  “I really like science it`s one of my favorites”.

St. Louis Blues players Robby Fabbri and Joel Edmundson taught students about the sport of hockey through the Street Blues and Future Goals stem curriculums.

Greg Bergner/Assistant Principal Parkway Central Middle School:  “The hockey scholar program focuses on STEM and its Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  So it`s focusing on those key areas within that computer program and the students really having fun while learning all that information:.

They were talking about the temperature of the ice to see how fast the pucks go and stuff about the goalies.  It`s really impressive I was kind of blown away.

And after the hometown hockey heroes got a tour of the stem programs in action, they became teammates with these Parkway Central Middle School students.

We got Joel in net on the other side so, we`re having a little fun with it.

And if one stem lesson sticks with the thousand students at this middle school, then that's a game winner for all.
