The United States is lagging so far behind in the world in science and math education that it has fallen to 27th in the world. As a result, the education system in the U.S. has taken on STEM in a nationwide push to advance our country in the hopes of turning out leaders in math and science industries. Future jobs will rely upon science, technology, engineering and math and at the current rate, the US will need at least 1 million more professionals with a math and science background over the next decade. If these numbers don’t improve, we will drop well below 27th in the world.
The STEM program gets kids excited about math and science. Mike Hudoba, an educator of the roller skating STEM program and PhD candidate at Ohio State University said of the program, “I can always tell it was a successful program when I have a line of kids waiting to hug me before they leave.” Palermo champions the program for being the force behind changing children’s lives, “We are literally making an impact on these kids to think about and incorporate math and science in their future. That’s where the jobs are going to be.” And because there are so many STEM-based grant programs out there, schools can apply to grants for these field trips making it a win-win for everyone involved.
A one-hour action packed lesson along with an introductory 10-minute roller skating lesson. Following the lesson, they will skate for approximately 2 hours, which continually reinforces the lessons they just learned. Lunch will be provided during the three-hour period. The lessons take place in the mornings, Monday through Thursday in one of two time slots: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm or 10:00am to 1:00pm or Friday from 9:00am to 12:00pm
