Science,Technology,Engineering and Math!
Skate Zone Fun Center, which has been providing fun, safe and exciting experiences for children for years, has added a new dimension to their game: education! Skate Zone has combined science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with roller skating to help children learn and experience those concepts first hand.
The STEM lesson programs are designed by experts from around the country, including PHD candidates and certified teachers, and uses enthusiastic and qualified educators to show that STEM is not only found in everyday experiences, but that it can be FUN! The hands-on activities that relate roller skating to STEM capture the student’s attention and help to explain difficult-to-teach concepts.
Since embarking on this STEM journey, Skate Zone has used their passion about the initiative to raise awareness on the growing need for STEM in the education of our youth. "We're very excited to be able to offer the STEM field trips and we're proud to be the exclusive licensee for Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana, Portage, and Stark counties. Combining hands on activity and fun has shown to be a jump start for learning and memory retention," said Larry Maynard, Skate Zone owner.
Skate Zone is offering these STEM field trips to elementary and middle schools across a five-county area in northeast Ohio. For more information, contact us today!
