The Family Fun Guide

Season 4, Episode 1 of 6

On this episode of iQ: smartparent, discover family past times that do double-duty: they're fun and educational. Experts from Adventure Outdoors and the after-school program Brashear Kids demonstrate how to turn an ordinary scavenger hunt into a high-tech adventure with the hot new hobby called geocaching and they show how geocaching and GPS technology can be used in the classroom to support STEM learning. Two young people from Brashear Kids provide a demonstration of geocaching in the studio. Then, an educator from the Allegheny Intermediate Unit reveals ways families can get creative with science experiments with arts and crafts supplies they already have lying around the house. Finally, the Education Coordinator of the youth makerspace Digital Harbor Foundation of Baltimore provides tips for families to make the most out of a visit to a makerspace, including suggestions for inter-generational maker collaborations.
