Roller skating allows STEM education to finally get the recognition it deserves – from kids as well as educators! Want to spark your kids’ curiosity? Celebrate STEM by bringing the family to Skate Moore on November 8th! Race around the rink with your kids, eat delicious food, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Discover what STEM is, why it’s important, and how STEM and roller skating correlate!
What is STEM?
STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math. Beyond its technical definition, STEM is about the principles that govern our everyday life – including fun activities such as roller skating! When you roller skate, you tap into different elements of STEM such as friction, motion, gravity, and design. Your kids can learn about physical fitness, the science of skating, the engineering that went into designing and building the rink, and so much more.
Why is it important for kids to learn about STEM?
In our world, careers in the sciences are on the rise. When your kids learn about STEM and how it affects their everyday life, they will better understand these subjects. It may even spark a lifelong curiosity that will lead them to a career in STEM! STEM helps kids learn more about the world around them. And STEM + skating shows them that educational experiences can be fun!
How does roller skating connect with STEM?
Roller skating is more than pushing off your feet and gliding around the rink. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics makes roller skating possible! With friction, velocity, acceleration, and force, your roller skates are able to push you around the rink. And technology and engineering are the cornerstones of designing roller-skates. Skating isn’t just great exercise – it’s a learning opportunity!
