The Discovery Zone for kids in our After School program – Kids 'R' Kids Valrico

Posted on 08-30-2015

Kids learn best when they are working with their hands and really digging into their experiments and learning. That is why we have created the Discovery Zone for kids in our After School program to learn about our environment and try out hands-on science experiments. Don’t worry; these experiments are always supervised.

Research shows that developing knowledge about environmental science will help students grasp a deeper understanding of science and the relationship between mankind and earth. The importance of this information can be found in this piece of research:

This is a critical time for students to understand how Earth works as a system and how humans interact with Earth. Understanding the causes and potential societal consequences of natural Earth processes (e.g., earthquakes, floods, landslides, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, weather, and global climate change) and the production, availability, and potential depletion of natural resources (e.g., water, soil, mineral, and energy) are of particular importance because they impact our economy, our security, and the safety and sustainability of our environment. The context for understanding modern Earth processes lies in deciphering records of Earth’s past. Investigating these records, as well as human interaction with modern Earth processes and resources, is therefore critical to the well being of humanity and the planet. Empowering students with scientific knowledge and skills to make informed decisions as citizens of our common home is a vital undertaking and a key responsibility for science educators and geoscientists.
