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.
Snapology is the premier partner for STEM programs, offering year-round hands-on, interactive activities for children ages 1-14 (and awesome Special Needs classes) using LEGO® bricks, K’Nex and technology.
They create STEM learning experiences through classes (video game design, robotics, and animation), competition team opportunities, workshops, camps, birthday parties, school field trips, scouting events and more!
Remember that stat from the beginning, the one that read; employment in occupations related to STEM is projected to grow to more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022? Well, Snapology is one of those employment opportunities, or rather, ownership opportunity. Snapology is a franchise and the nearest one to us is in Findlay, we NEED one in Toledo! So not only is this post a push for more STEM but also a plea for mom-trepreneurs! They offer franchise opportunities that are affordable, flexible and can provide quick profitability. No more having to hash tag your images “like a boss”, you’ll be the boss!! Who wants to be their own boss? For more info checkout their website.

What a wonderful opportunity for our area! I’d sign both of my kiddos up if it existed!
My husband was looking for something like this for our (almost 8 yr old) 3rd grader. I would love to get this in Toledo as well!
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.
All three of my big kids would love this 🙂 We bought some Brain Flakes (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XG18XJ9/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 a few weeks ago and they are a huge hit for car/waiting room building 🙂
These look awesome! I have got to get some of these….thanks you so much for sharing!
Love watching my kids use their imagination playing with Legos and knex!
It is amazing what their imaginations can create! Thanks for entering & good luck! 😉
Congrats!! arferrell12, you are the winner!! At your earliest convenience email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get that mailed out ASAP!
Love these they are so creative and easy to use for all ages
This looks perfect for my 6yr old master builder! Just the other day at breakfast he created a similar Gator all on his own and is eager to make New Creations
That is awesome!! Sounds like you have a future engeneer/architect at your breakfast table. 😉
I love educational toys! This would be great for my daughters fine motor skills and imagination.
Would love to see this in Toledo!
This looks so cool! Sort of reminds me of build it, which I miss dearly 😭😭
Yes, that’s what I was thinking….we miss it too!!
So would this be like an Imagination Station where you can go in at any time to play and explore? That would be awesome!
I think they will offer a variety of options….like Build it! did…walk-ins, classes, camps, b-day parties, etc.
This would be a great addition to the Toledo area!
Looks cool, I wonder what the costs would be though.
Good point, I hadn’t considered the cost
Snapology sounds amazing! We need more lego centered STEM activities in the area. My kids of all ages love to play with legos!
