The Skate Zone Teaches STEM to Struthers Third Graders

On Monday, April 24 & Tuesday, April 25, the third grade classes at Struthers Elementary School took a field trip to The Skate Zone in Austintown to learn about STEM.

During their trip, students were introduced to how STEM is a part of all that is offered at the Skate Zone. They engaged in an activity in which reverse engineered a roller skate, as well as identified the properties and functions of the various parts of the skate. During the activity, an introduction to static, kinetic and fluid friction was presented and students were asked to measure the friction using a roller skate on the skate floor and carpet.

The STEM programs at the Skate Zone teach students from grades K-8 five different lessons that include a variety of topics under STEM Education including geometry, waves, force/friction, calculating distance and more. This type of STEM learning is offered in more than 20 states, but the Skate Zone is the first location in the Mahoning Valley to offer the program.
