It can be hard to get kids excited about learning. That why sometimes it is a good idea to teach kids using fun activities that they’re already interest in. That’s why National STEM Day is a great day to take your kids roller skating in Odenton!
National STEM Day, held annually on November 8th, was created to help teach children about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (commonly referred to as STEM fields). You see, many of the fastest growing occupations in the United States are STEM careers. This means that fostering a love of and interest in STEM fields can give your children a huge advantage in life. Unfortunately, the US’s STEM education is falling behind compared to that of other industrialized countries. Globally, US students rank roughly in the middle based on our children’s science, math, and reading scores.
Teaching STEM with roller skating is a perfect way to get your kids excited about learning.
Physics in roller skating is very important. Friction, acceleration, velocity, inertia, and centrifugal force are all vital components of roller skating. Accelerating, stopping, and moving are all only possible on roller skates because of physics. This makes roller skating a wonderful opportunity to teach your children about the importance of STEM.
So check out our hours and make your plans to visit our Odenton skating center in observance of National STEM Day. You and your family will get some great exercise, have tons of fun, and you will be helping foster a love of STEM fields in your kids!
