LEARNING THROUGH ROLLER SKATING!
Conquering Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
Wilbraham, MA‐ Interskate 91, which has been providing fun, safe and amazing experiences for children for 26 years, has added a new dimension to their game: education! Interskate 91 has combined science,
technology, engineering and math (STEM) with roller skating to help children learn and experience concepts first hand. The STEM lesson programs are designed by experts across the country including PHD candidates and certified teachers and uses an experienced former middle school science teacher, Eileen DeMings to show that STEM is not only found in everyday experiences, but that it can be FUN! The hands on activities that relate roller skating to STEM capture the student’s attention and help explain difficult‐to‐teach concepts. Since embarking on this STEM journey, Interskate 91 has used their passion about the initiative to raise awareness on the growing need for STEM in the education of our youth. Jay McCoy, Event Coordinator at Interskate 91 South, states, “The lack of STEM interest and seeing how far the students in the United States are falling behind in Stem is staggering. Our program gets children excited about STEM and motivates them to become involved in STEM topics in the future. Roller skating is such a natural fit when it comes to explaining STEM concepts, and the students are always completely amazed by the connection.” Interskate 91 South is offering these STEM field trips across the New England area to elementary and middle
schools. They do have a high school programs available as well. To schedule a tour of our facility or attend our unique STEM program please contact Jay McCoy at 413‐543‐3991 Ext. 109 or email him at Jay@interskate91.com
