Take A Field Trip To A Skating Rink!

Who doesn’t love field trips? We are sure it was the highlight of your month when you and your class would get out of the classroom and go somewhere new and different. Often times, field trips are to museums, or nature preserves, which is still exciting for students, but what if you found out your child’s next class field trip was to a skating rink! You heard right! A skating rink! At St8ter’s Paradise in Somerset Kentucky, we have a teacher prepared to instruct students, and are working with local schools to implement the Roller Skating Association’s idea to incorporate roller skating into S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects!

The Importance of S.T.E.M. Subjects

It seems that in the past decade or so we have been hearing more and more about S.T.E.M. subjects and their importance in a student’s educational career, but the fundamentals behind them have been around for much longer. This education grouping is implemented worldwide, and it a fantastic way to educate our youth about the importance of these subjects in the workforce.

How Can Roller Skating Teach My Child Anything

By engaging students outside of a traditional classroom and textbook setting, the potential for retention is much higher. Also, up to 50% of students learn best by doing (Kinesthetic learning style) and will therefore understand the practicality of the lesson. By participating in activities they enjoy, they will be more apt to be interested in these important topics.
