It's not every day that two great athletes can team up for an intensive training session, but that's what professional futbol player Daniele Bruno and @SpecialOlympics snowshoer Anton Grotz did. They started at the soccer pitch working on ball handling skills, agility and power shooting, then Anton brought Daniele to his family farm for intensive speed training with snowshoes. "He's like me," says Daniele of Anton, "He never gives up." This year, Microsoft is helping empower #SpecialOlympics athletes around the world as the Official Technology Partner of the Games.

Hacking #STEM in the classroom starts with teachers who are willing to get hands-on. Jason Ewert is one of many teachers who's doing just that. Using everyday materials like paper plates, plastic cups and drinking straws, he's modernizing the way he teaches science, technology, engineering and mathematics to his students. A participant in @microsoftedu's Hacking STEM program, he uses the free, downloadable tools, including lesson plans, activities and customized Excel spreadsheets, to bring his classroom lessons to life. And it's not just exciting for his students. It's reinvigorated his teaching style, too. “All we need the teachers to do is the same thing we’re asking our kids to do. Just get in there, and dig in."
