In 2013, the D-backs launched D-backs Science of Baseball presented by Chase and Insight, a series of programs and initiatives that promote the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Recognizing that STEM is a priority within the community and the education system, the D-backs created season-long programing and partnership opportunities designed to engage with teachers, schools and students.
