The Basics of STEM

STEM Educational ProgramsSTEM – or Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – are vital areas of education for your children and students to learn. Together, the STEM educational groupings teach students the disciplines they need to succeed in their learning and in the real world, setting a valuable foundation for them to build upon as they grow older.

Despite STEM industry related careers being some of the best in the US, STEM fields are often understaffed. We are looking for some of the best STEM educators in the area to become a part of our Skate ‘N Fun Zone team.

At Skate ‘N Fun Zone, we’re looking for educators to take part in our STEM learning plans. Our lessons will be conducted in large groups, on at least two days of the week between 9AM and 2PM.

Aside from a passion for STEM learning, proficiency in Microsoft Office and the ability to present all of this information in a manner that young students can understand, we have other requirements, too, that you can see in full here.

Finally, for those of you who want to support your local schools while providing your kids or students with a fun time, come by and schedule a School Skate Night with us. School Skate Nights allow students, their friends and families to get out and about, socialize and have a good time while helping fund their local schools, funding that goes toward playgrounds, supplies, computers and more.

Learn more about this opportunity and book a date with us.

  • 3. Get the Word Out – The most essential part of a successful fundraiser is making sure people know about your event. Use social media, email blasts, flyers, and worth of mouth to let everyone know about your day.
  • 4. Fun for All Ages – Roller skating is an event that attracts all ages, which is great news for you and your non-profit agency! You can invite absolutely everyone to this event and they will all have a great time.
