S.T.E.M. Field Trips Learning & Fun Rolled Into One

WHAT ARE S.T.E.M. FIELD TRIPS?

EDUCATION AND FUN, ALL ROLLED INTO ONE!

A unique educational experience that gets students EXCITED about learning! Students will learn how the concepts of SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING and MATH can be found in everyday experiences, even FUN experiences like ROLLER SKATING!

Our professional STEM Educators teach visiting students about how STEM principles exist in just about every part of life. The lessons focus on hands on activities that are both educational and fun! Lessons are customized based on teachers’ needs to DIRECTLY RELATE back to classroom learning, making this program completely unique! Following the completion of the 45 Minute STEM Lesson, the students roller skate for physical fitness. While roller skating, the concepts the students learned are continually reinforced.

Our lessons are designed not only to help students overcome their fear of learning STEM concepts but to show how STEM is both FUN & EXCITING!
