This is particularly poignant on this summer solstice 2019 as we embark on our very first podcast.
“In 1992, as the “age of information” was arriving, and the world wide web was coming. It occurred to me, that for kids to learn science in a fun and meaningful way, and to be able to embrace this new high tech world, kids would first need to learn science Hands-on or as we call it, High Touch, , because the High Touch part is the creative and inspiring part, which only then can kids embrace the high tech part!” said Shaw, founder of High Touch High Tech.
High Touch High Tech began growing in popularity, both in the growth of franchise locations, and partnerships. Back in 1998 we partnered with Royal Caribbean cruise lines, and to this day, our fun science programs are on all 27 ships, serving kids in 3 different age groups.
After our first decade, we introduced the tag line: Science Made Fun, which very distinctly defines what it is we actually do!
Today HTHT SMF operates in 11 countries and growing. Our goal is for every child everywhere to have the opportunity to experience our special programs.
Somewhere in the world, at this very moment, there is a HTHT SMF program happening, perhaps it’s a volcano erupting with Fun.
Podcast Title: Archimedes Quote: “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.”
We are joined today by AlliGator Ramsay, a HTHT scientist and a high school science teacher, also joining us Christa Flores, a STEM education expert.
What did Archimedes mean?
How profoundly true is this statement?
Statement can be a metaphor and applied to other aspects of science, and human motivation & curiosity.
Does this statement have relevance in today’s classroom or today’s learner?
Are today’s children equipped with enough curiosity? Can they tear themselves away from their screen, to roll up their sleeves and do hands-on science?
