HUGE LIST OF FREE LEARNING RESOURCES DURING COVID 19 SCHOOL CLOSURES

With some many kids quickly transitioning to home education this coming week, we want to give you some great resources for learning. Surf Skate Science was born out of #1 Our love for for surfing and skating, #2 Our love of science and STEAM education, #3 Our love of making learning FUN, hands-on and active, #3 The fact that we have home-schooled all 3 of our kids.


This month we will be working alongside our partners to provide some great online content for our Surf Skate Science students and a few added resources open to all who are homeschooling (n the current climate) through a partnership with National Geographic explorers. With all of these virtual classes, our goal is to make learning fun, to introduce youth to carers in STEAM-based careers, and to inspire the next generation.


To sign up for our National Geographic LIVE SESSIONS, head to our Facebook Events Page and grab a FREE ticket!
