Three-year sponsorship will produce fun and engaging activities and opportunities for little learners
SAN JOSE, CA., August 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Tech Interactive has announced plans to create engaging and engaging resources for families to explore critical thinking and problem-solving skills through new sponsorship from Stanford Medicine Children’s Health. As part of the three-year program, The Tech will create a STEAM activity guide available in libraries and healthcare practices later this month. The agreement will also create exciting new ways to encourage visitors to enjoy Climb The Cascade, presented by Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, and develop another exciting attraction for visitors next year.
“We are thrilled to support such a creative and entertaining way to help children discover their problem-solving potential,” said Les Lifter, Chief Marketing Officer of Stanford Medicine Children’s Health. “This sponsorship provides a winning opportunity for our shared community and creates a fantastic environment to help more children and their families get interested in science.”
Previous sponsorship from Stanford Medicine Children’s Health made possible one of The Interactive’s most popular attractions, Climb the Cascade. The engineering design activity encourages families to build a device that launches a ball onto platforms of different heights. Visitors don hard hats, choose fun materials, and explore mechanical engineering concepts as they tweak their designs over and over. It’s not uncommon to see innovators of all ages spend hours perfecting their device.
“We are grateful for this support at a time when so many families are looking for fun ways to enrich their children’s education during the pandemic,” said Katrina Stevens, President and CEO of The Tech and an expert in learning sciences. “Providing hands-on STEM activities that anyone can do at home in waiting rooms and libraries will also go a long way in helping families fall in love with learning.”
The activity guide will be available in English and Spanish starting this month.
