Celebrate the Start of School

Skate World Center in Tallahassee, FL is the perfect venue for your back-to-school party or classroom field trip! Treat your child to a day at Skate World with friends as a break from the rigid school routine. Then make sure you let your child’s teachers know about the exciting educational field trips Skate World Center offers throughout the year!

STEM Skating Field Trips

Our classroom field trips aren’t merely about fun — they’re educational. Sometimes, the best way to break up a monotonous back-to-school classroom routine is ‘in the field’. That’s why your child and his or her classmates will love strapping on roller skates at Skate World for hands-on learning about STEM subjects: science, technology, engineering, and math.

Skate World’s classroom field trips are taught by professional educators that work with your child’s teachers to customize lessons about:

  • The Science of Roller Skating
  • Motion & Rink Design
  • Music, Math & Roller Skating
  • Super Sound! Acoustics & Rink Design
  • Engineering Magic & Lighting

Lessons are tailored for kindergarten students all the way up to high school grades. Grants may be available to fund your field trip. (Bonus: students will never realize how much they’re learning while they skate!)

Here’s an important math lesson for you to remember: Your child + Skate World Center = educational fun. Also, keep an eye on our Facebook page for details about themed skate parties, Sensory Friendly Skate days, and fundraisers.
