LEARNING IN DISGUISE
Imagine a world where the mere act of playing taught children about structural engineering, rocket propulsion, and biological taxonomy.
With unique programs such as Geomotion, custom-tailored tools to enable children as young as three to conduct scientific experiments, and student-led projects that incorporate the environment and charity, it’s no wonder that students at Amazing Explorers love to learn. At Amazing Explorers Academy, even recess is a learning opportunity. When you walk out through the outdoor play areas, you are met with gardens in bloom, exploration areas, and oversized blocks. Most would see these as areas for children to run and play, but Amazing Explorers has transformed these into educational pitstops where gardens become places where kids can learn about photosynthesis and cultivation and building blocks teach them about structural integrity and load stress. It’s been proven that stimulating several senses enables children to grasp concepts better and to retain information more readily. The Geomotion program provides students with a fun way to learn while moving or listening to music – just think about how easy it is to memorize lyrics…how quickly can your children remember the periodic table of elements with a song?
PASSION + HEART + NATURE = EASTON!
Interested in nature since before he could talk, Easton was saddened to see the trees that lined his hometown of Oviedo be slowly cut down. Passionate about saving the trees and the environment, 4-year-old Easton started a recycling program at the Oviedo branch of Amazing Explorers Academy to raise awareness and to get his classmates and teachers involved in his cause. Students bring in recyclables to be used in school projects – boxes for robots and cans for gardening and water experiments – and bring home knowledge on what should and shouldn’t be tossed in the recycling bin! Encouraged by his teachers, Easton hopes his program will spread throughout his town and for recycling to be seen as a gift to nature and not a chore!
