16 New Ways To Brighten the Distance Learning Doldrums
Camp Galileo Anywhere Fall Online Classes Begin August 31st
Galileo is delighted to announce the introduction of new online classes and camps for Fall 2020. The new Camp Galileo online titles being offered – in addition to the dozens of currently available titles – will provide a complement to students’ core curriculum by offering rewarding enrichment opportunities during the week—including art, design and engineering projects—proven to spark innovation and build a growth mindset.
Many families are grappling with how they will manage their children’s educational experience now that COVID-19 has interrupted the traditional start of the 2020-2021 school year. To address the gaps in distance-learning, parents are seeking ways to brighten the shelter-in-place doldrums for their kids and offer safe options for social interaction and joyful exploration. Camp Galileo Anywhere provides a welcome supplement to children’s school routines.
Online Instruction That Transcends the Screen
Camp Galileo Anywhere fall camps and classes provide the learning support parents are seeking:
- High-quality programming taught by skilled, enthusiastic instructors kids love.
- A welcome structure on days that schools can’t provide full-time instruction
- Core curriculum that complements the school day with rewarding enrichment—including art, design and engineering projects—proven to spark innovation and creativity, and build a growth mindset.
Each online class or camp requires just a few simple household materials and minimal supervision, so adults get a real break and kids get a much needed change of pace. All classes have been thoughtfully created and tested to be age appropriate with just the right amount of challenge and fun that will keep them engaged even after the class has ended.
“Parents are worried about how they will keep their kids engaged this fall. Making sure they have creative outlets and opportunities for social engagement is important right now”, says Maggie Roach Black, Galileo VP of Field Ops and parent of three. “Camp Galileo Anywhere has created a way to supplement kids’ distance learning curriculum that is truly enriching and joyful.”
