Science – Technology – Engineering – Math
Sound like something that could be FUN?
It may not at first, but it definitely can be!
Before we get in to the FUN, here’s a bit of background for you.
According to this PBS article, in 2015, there were 600,000 vacant technology jobs. The White House believed this to be due to the lack of computer science opportunities in schools. Towards the end of Obama’s presidency, he began to push for the new program Computer Science for All and it is continuously growing under Trump’s presidency. This initiative is all about offering EVERY student the ability to start learning computer science skills as early as Kindergarten.
Now you may know that Computer Science courses have been available. However they’re mostly offered as an elective for High School students only. Now everyone is getting a shot at learning these skills which are crucial in this day and age for consumers and employees. There is a lack of females and minorities in this field and the added educational opportunities will fix that soon enough.
Now getting back to how I said this can be FUN. Sure, this type of education is enjoyed by some but maybe not everyone. When LEGO bricks and children focused activities become involved, there is loads of fun to be had by all ages. That’s where Snapology comes in to play.
Snapology offers STEM and Robotics opportunities at each of their franchises. The thing that really caught my attention is that even my toddler can join in on the fun! They offer activities and programs for children aged 1-14!
Snapology offers camps, workshops, classes, and even birthday parties! You can choose from a variety of topics or themes and match them up to the activity of your choice. Playing and building with blocks and LEGO bricks is a favorite past time for many children. Snapology helps turn it in to a learning experience at the same time.
Be sure to check out your local Snapology franchise today and plan some fun activities for Christmas break or in to the new year. If you’re local to Northeast Ohio, there is a location in Kent.
