Growin’GEERS is excited to start 2019 with a new foundation and with some exciting plans for this year!
What’s new with us you ask?
Well, at the end of 2018, we completely revamped our website to be cleaner, faster, and easier to navigate for your users! We hope you are enjoying it so far, and we would love to hear any feedback you have to make it better!
New Quest - Breezing Along
We just released our newest quest, which is one of our most difficult ones to date, called Breezing Along. This quest is focused on teaching the concept of Wind Power. We discuss how wind turbines work, where they are used, and how wind turbine engineers and other engineers contribute to making wind power a functional option for energy production.
2019 Future Quests
We will be releasing another quest in the early part of February focused on the science of acoustics and what acoustical engineers do.
In addition, we have plans to release 6 new quests throughout the year that cover topics such as motor vehicles, erosion, crop rotation/irrigation, and more!
Conventions and Live Events
We are planning on participating in more events in the Jacksonville area which include:
The Jacksonville Science Festival - March 7th & 8th, 2019
FL STEM Expo - February 9th, 2019
In addition, we will be attending two home school conventions this year:
Florida Homeschool Convention - August 8th - 10th, 2019
Southeast Homeschool Expo - July 26th & 27th, 2019
We are focusing on creating a lot of STEM focused freebies and printables that you can use to supplement your Growin’GEERS membership that are fun and seasonally focused!
We are looking forward to 2019, and we hope to see you at one of our events or learning from one of our new quests this year!
