New After-School Activity & Educational Business in Town! *GIVEAWAY*


Students K-12 only spends 18.5% of their waking hours at school a year. Shocker, right!? The remainder of that time is filled with a revolving door of extra-curricular activities, sports, dance, scouts….they not only fill up our evenings but our weekend too! And why do we do it? We do it because we want our children to be good team players, to be well-rounded, & prepared for life.  Speaking of being prepared for life, here are some fun statistics…..

  • Employment in occupations related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math is projected to grow to more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022. Source
  • The odds of your child becoming a professional athlete…let’s say, basketball player, is 1 in 11,711 for men & 1 in 13,005 for women (just to put this into perspective, the odds of getting struck by lighting is 1 in 3,000). Source
  • And with regard to your little girl or boy becoming a professional dancer, the Magic 8 Ball says-Outlook Not So Good! Source

 

In no way are those stats meant to deter you, or your child, from their dreams, I say reach for the sky! But it is meant to shed some light on the topic of investment. Where are your children investing all their time and your money? Perhaps it’s time to diversify and add some STEM to those plies & slam-dunks.

    What a great learning experience while having fun too !! This would be so helpful for kids today. Teaching them teamwork which is very important .So many kids get caught up in video games and don’t socialize as much as they should and then have no clue how to interact with other people .This is critical for life because you may have bosses or fellow employees that you may not like,but you have to learn to work together for the greater cause of the company.

    So would this be like an Imagination Station where you can go in at any time to play and explore? That would be awesome!
