STEM is fun

Science + Technology +Engineering + Math = FUN!

STEM…it’s not just for plants anymore.  Today school’s are focusing on STEM programs for students in grades K-12.  The goal is to teach students that science, technology, egineering and math are integral parts of our lives.  We find STEM in everything we do.

At Starlite Family Fun Center in Stockbridge our STEM programs are not just educational.  They are fun too!  We teach students in 2nd grade about motion, friction and gravity with exciting, hands on activities, including push/pull charades,  a scavenger hunt and a car race.  Our 4th grade program delves into how much force is needed to move an object, and students will experiment by building a catapult.  We also explore simple machines and how they’ve helped us throughout history and go on a simple machine scavenger hunt!  At the end of the program the students get to skate, and our DJ leads them through group games on the skate floor.  Naturally, the day ends with a huge dance party.

STEM at Starlite in Stockbridge is local, affordable and FUN!  We can tailor programs for students in grades K-5.  Watch our website or our facebook page for updates on our STEM programs.

Roller Skating is Fun!

When was the last time you strapped on a pair of skates and took a few turns around the skate floor?  Remember when you were a child and attended roller skating birthday parties with your friends, or maybe even had a few parties of your own in elementary school?  How about when you were 15 and the rink was THE place to be on a Friday or Saturday night.  All of the kids from the local high schools were there.  Ahhhh, the memories….waiting to be asked to skate when the DJ played any Air Supply song; stacking quarters on top of Pac Man, Asteroids or Galega; or getting a soft pretzel and a coke from the snack bar.  Roller skating, and more specifically, the RINK is the stuff our childhood dreams were made of.  Who says those days have to end?  Today roller skating rinks are family friendly and people from 2-102 can be found tooling around the floor.  Make plans with your family, or your friends, and come on out for a great time and make some new memories.  I guarantee you have just as much fun as you did all those years ago.
