The Science of Roller-Skating

Are your kids engaging with STEM curriculum? Science, technology, engineering, and math are vital fields for kids to learn about. But more and more students—especially middle school and high school girls—are losing interest in STEM lessons. So how do you re-engage students  in a world with so much white noise? That’s where we come in.

STEM Field Trips in Lynchburg

two kids with chemistry setWe’re combining fun and education to create an incredible field trip that both kids and teachers will love. Our lessons teach kids to be creative, love learning, and look at STEM in new and innovative ways. We have lessons tailored for students of all ages, as well as STEM lessons for homeschool groups. We even have curriculum options so teachers can reinforce the lessons learned in the classroom. Choose from one of these interactive STEM lessons for kids:

  • Learn about friction, area, perimeter, and geometry in The Science of Roller-Skating
  • Get kids invested in force and friction, as well as diameter and circumference in Motion and Rink Design
  • Help kids learn about the science of sound, including beats per minute, frequency, and speed in Acoustics and Rink Design
  • Learn about lights and lighting design in Engineering Magic and Lighting

When the learning is over, it’s time for the kids to put their new knowledge to good use! Let your students experience motion, acoustic, and physical fitness with 2 hours of open skating at FunQuest after each 1 hour lesson. We’ll even throw in a few tips about staying healthy through regular skate fitness.

Plan a Homeschool Outing at FunQuest!

Homeschool allows parents to give their kids individualized attention, work with their child’s special skills, and dig more deeply into the way their child learns. But no matter where a child’s classroom may be, it’s still important for kids to spend time together engaging in physical fun. Add Homeschool Skate to your curriculum this year!

Benefits of Skating for Kids

Roller-skating isn’t just fun; it’s good for you! Active play helps kids learn healthy habits and develop positive life skills. What are some benefits of roller-skating?

  1. Helps kids play away extra energy so they’re better behaved during school time.
  2. Develops social skills and team play.
  3. Keeps kids active, which improves their physical health and makes them more likely to become healthy adults.
  4. Makes kids smarter! Studies show that an hour of physical activity each day noticeably boosts kids’ performance in school.
  5. Puts a smile on their faces. Fun is important!

STEM Home School Experience
