Fun STEM Field Trips at Sparkles Hiram

Another semester has begun, and many teachers are searching for fresh ways to engage their students. And despite interest from younger students, STEM education is where students lose interest the quickest. Sparkles wants to change that! Our STEM skating program gives teachers in Hiram a way to engage their students with the curriculum and spark a lifelong interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. How does it work?

STEM Field Trips at Sparkles Hiram

elementary students running outsideWe use roller-skating to teach kids the science of sound, motion, physical fitness, and engineering. Our goal is to support teachers’ current curriculum, get kids engaged and asking questions, and show them how fun STEM can be. We have courses for both elementary school and middle school students, with a variety of lesson plans depending on the needs of the teacher. Students will get 1 hour of interactive STEM instruction. Then they’ll be able to put those lessons to good use with 2 hours of physical fitness through roller-skating!
