We are excited to announce that we now host educational elementary school STEM field trips at Rollerland Skate Center in Fort Collins, Colorado! If your group of kiddos or classroom tend to be curious and seek to understand the “why” behind lessons, then this program is for you.
What is STEM?
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. The focus of STEM programs is to show students how these four concepts are a part of their everyday lives.
Joshua M. Sneideman, an Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow at the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, describes, “STEM is a way of thinking about how educators at all levels—including parents—should be helping students integrate knowledge across disciplines, encouraging them to think in a more connected and holistic way.”
How does the program work?
When students visit Rollerland, they will be encouraged to see how everyday activities, like lacing up their skates and the act of rollerskating, tie into science, technology, engineering, and math. It engages their minds to not just see the world around them, but to understand how the world around them works.
We offer 7 STEM educational programs for elementary school students. All of our programs were created by professional educations for children. Each program includes 1 hour of STEM education and 2 hours of fitness through roller skating.
The programs are:
- Science of roller skating
- Motion and rink design
- Music, math, and roller skating
- Acoustic and rink design
- Engineering math and lighting
- Heart, health, and fitness
- Formulas, fractions, and fun
