Enrich Your Children’s Education and Future Opportunities

Parent picks ChandlerAll parents want the best for their children. Challenge Island provides STEM education enrichment programs that challenge kids with creative problem solving and critical thinking. Our programs are designed to get kids to expand their STEM skills, while creating, problem solving, and collaborating.

Enrolling your child in Challenge Island’s extraordinary educational enrichment program provides your child with a head start in tomorrow’s world. Your child will learn how to create and innovate in ways that will make him/ her unique and prosperous. They will learn how to tackle any problem by first understanding the problem, brainstorming possible solutions, putting their plan into action, improving their plan/product, and proudly sharing their end creation with other tribes.

Children will learn to think critically and creatively. Thinking in unique, “out-of-the-box” ways will become second nature to them. Challenge Island activities inspire creative problem solving while using both the left and right portions of the brain. Your child will learn that it is okay to not get something right the first time. All outcomes are celebrated. They will learn that if they analyze and study their mistakes (design flaws) they can learn from them and improve the end result.

Challenge Island Tribes

Children work in collaborative groups that are called tribes. They learn how to work with others in a valuable way. They learn to differentiate tasks based on each person’s strengths and skill set. They figure out that while each tribe member has different strengths to share with the group, each member is unique yet valuable and essential for the success of the tribe.

Children will experience hands-on activities that use all the modalities (auditory, visual, kinesthetic and tactile) to ensure that skills and experiences are not easily forgotten. The challenges provide students with extraordinary, educational enrichment experiences that are so rare during the school day due to the rigid time constraints that often come with today’s ever present high stakes testing. Children get to play and even make a mess while learning all sorts of valuable lifelong skills. Make sure you let your child take the challenge today in a Challenge Island class!
