5 Ways STEM Programs Benefit Kids

Education for kids should always remain interesting and fun, but that isn’t the case all the time. Most kids seem to lose an interest in STEM education. When it comes to science, technology, engineering, and math, it’s important to keep kids interested. After all, those kids will be building our future! Here at Fun America @ Roll On America, we’ve found an amazing way to keep kids interested in STEM. And it incorporates our favorite thing: roller-skating.

5 Benefits of STEM Education

  1. It teaches kids to be forward-thinking about technology.
  2. It teaches kids problem-solving skills.
  3. More and more, technology is an integral part of life that kids need to understand.
  4. Despite what some may think, STEM fields teach creativity and innovation.
  5. It gives kids confidence to make goals and take measurable steps to achieve them.

Fun America @ Roll On America offers various STEM lessons for all ages and a variety of curriculums. Choose your skating STEM lesson based on elementary, middle school, or high school curriculum, then find the lesson plan that most closely meets your current lessons. A STEM educational field trip shows students how science, technology, engineering and math integrate into their everyday lives, sometimes in ways they hadn’t considered before. A STEM field trip at includes:

  • 1 hour of S.T.E.M. education
  • 2 hours of roller skating physical fitness
  • Meal plan options

Ready for your students to get excited about learning again? To think creatively about analytical tasks and disciplines? To get engaged in their futures? Call Fun America @ Roll On America to book a STEM field trip today.

STEM Skating Parties: Have an educational school field trip at Fun America!

Promote Lifelong Learning with STEM Field Trips

The end of school is just around the corner, and kids are working hard to ace exams and make it to summer break. But the thought on educators’ minds is a little different: how can I keep my students invested? We have three words for you: STEM field trip!

Teaching Kids about STEM

boy giving thumbs upWhen you look at the stats, it’s easy to get discouraged. Only 44% of high school grads are ready for college-level math, and only 36% of students are ready for college-level science. Girls, who often love math and science more than the boys in elementary school, quickly lose interest as they get older. And the problem isn’t intelligence; it’s encouragement. So what can we do to keep kids interested in science, technology, engineering, and math? Take them skating, of course!

STEM Field Trips at Roll on America

At Roll on America, we want to encourage kids who are passionate about STEM, and spark the interest of students who aren’t. Many kids lose interest in STEM fields because they can’t relate to the material. But these disciplines are an integral part of students’ favorite activities. STEM field trips at Roll on America tailor lessons to each grade level and curriculum. We partner with schools to show kids the real world applications of the lessons taught by their teachers. Our lesson plans include:

  • The science of roller-skating
  • Motion and rink design
  • Math, music, and skating
  • Acoustics and rink design
  • Engineering and lighting
  • Physical fitness (with 1 hour of physical education and 2 hours of putting the lesson into practice on the skating floor!)

After each lesson, kids will have 2 hours to laugh, play, and put their new knowledge to the test during free skate time.

Get your students excited about school again! Call Roll on America to book a STEM field trip for June and learn more about our fall availability.
