Quirky After School Programs

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

With the growing interest in after school programs shown by the Government as well as parents, new and hitherto unheard of programs are being explored.

In an attempt to make a child aware of his responsibilities as an individual and as a citizen, these after school programs make use of a child’s natural curiosity and his irrepressible energy.

Investigative Skills

In some schools in Kernersville, children are developing their investigative skills. Children meet with adults who introduce them to the details of fake non-violent crimes. They take notes, visit the scene and gather information.

Students learn to listen to alibis, collect fingerprints and gather any other pieces of evidence. According to the principal, these after school programs challenge her students’ problem solving skills. Children learn to think critically and to form informed judgments.

Fisheries and sciences

In North Carolina, children who are interested get a chance to win a scholarship through their after school activity.

Here, students are given a chance to face hands-on fisheries science experiments in a freshwater or marine setting. Professionals, educators and experts from the world of Fisheries act as mentors. Students accepted into the program get a $3,000 scholarship.

The above examples go to show that after school programs are becoming serious. They are slowly morphing into important parts of a child’s education and moving away from the fun-and-frolic-only programs of the past.
