Falls Brook Bowlathon!
Date(s) - 27/01/2018
12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Hold the date! Falls Brook Centre’s Bowlathon to support our Education Programs is happening on Saturday January 27th from 1pm to 3pm at the Kinsgwood Resort Hanwell,. Registration starting at 12:30.
FBC Bowl-a-thon fundraising proceeds will help to put our Education staff at the front of classrooms to provide practical STEM* labs to rural New Brunwick schoolkids and enable them to understand and experience science and engineering with a focus on real-world applications and ties to the NB curriculum. This method both supports teachers and schools, and gives access and an appetite for STEM to the rural schoolkids of our beautiful province.
So sign up for a fun-filled team-based bowling event where you can laugh away the winter blues, win prizes and know that you are helping us help rural schoolkids understand and appreciate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and show that they too can have a solid future. We look forward to seeing you on January 27th at Kingswood for a great game of bowling!
*STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Math. This umbrella term encompasses any subject or career choice related to Science, Technology, Engineering or Math. New Brunswick schoolchildren and particularly rural NB schoolchildren are at a disadvantage to other Canadian children unfortunately which is why the curriculum recently changed to have more hands-on labs. In turn, our program also changed to ensure that NB teachers have the resources and support that they need to pivot and ensure that rural NB schoolchildren can close the gap. The end goal for all of us who encourage and teach schoolchildren is to give them enough access and exposure to different areas to realise their own interests and potential as they grow and thrive. Who knows how many natural engineers, scientists and mathematicians we are growing here if they don’t get to enjoy and explore STEM at a young age? This is why we do what we do; to give schoolkids a chance to find out what they like and what they are good at so that they can grow up happy and satisfied in their choices as adults and give their best efforts to their communities and province as a whole.
