Keeping kids engaged with the material is one of the hardest parts of teaching, but today teachers are using so many exciting ways to make learning fun and help students retain information. One of the best ways to add some excitement and out-of-the-box learning to your curriculum is by planning a field trip. At Skate World Deer Park, we’re proud to offer a STEM field trip program that can help your students learn important concepts on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) test. Take a look at the basics of our field trip program below to see if it’s right for your class!
The “Rolling with Science” STEM Program
When kids get the chance to experience hands-on learning, they’re more likely to remember those lessons. Our roller skating STEM field trips can teach your students about a variety of concepts, including these:
- Sir Isaac Newton and the laws of motion
- Forces (centrifugal, radial) and friction
- Balance and counter balance
- Physics-based mathematics
- Solar system movement, including Earth’s rotation and orbit
We’re committed to providing a good value to the schools we work with, which is why our roller skating field trips include a 45-minute STEM presentation on a teacher-selected topic, 1 hour and 45 minutes of skating, and free skate rentals. We also offer the option to add lunch to your visit.
