|Thrively's Kid Cred game|
With nearly every parent I know talking about the Common Core and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) in the school curriculum, I'm happy to hear about an inaugural family-friendly event that celebrates learning.
The STEAM Carnival kicks off this weekend, October 25-26, at the Port of Los Angeles, and there will be lots of games and activities created just for kids.
Not only that, but I'm giving away a Family 4-Pack of tickets to STEAM Carnival (see below).
Created by Two Bit Circus, an engineering entertainment company, STEAM Carnival will feature tech-friendly games and carnival-style entertainment. There will also be plenty of artisanal food.
Rooms with lasers? Check. Mad Science demos? Check. Musical robots? Yes, and more!
There will even be Kid Cred, a game show inspired by "The Newlywed Game," in which parents are tested on their knowledge of their children's interests. The game was created by Thrively, a family website that helps kids discover their passions.
This sounds like such a fun way to get outside and spend time with the kiddos while also encouraging them to get involved in science, tech, and the arts!
