Summer break will be here and gone in no time, making it imperative that families find fun activities for their kids to do over break. Visiting WonderWorks Pigeon Forge this summer is a great way to keep cool and keep the whole family entertained. Not only does WonderWorks provide loads of fun activities, but the attractions are also rooted in education, helping to ensure that kids are learning in their day-to-day lives, without even realizing it.
“As part of our educational mission here at WonderWorks, we strive to offer attractions and programs that ignite a passion for science within every visitor,” says Kerensa Archer, education sales manager at WonderWorks Pigeon Forge. “Families can keep the learning going all summer long when they come to our upside-down laboratory!”
WonderWorks Pigeon Forge is a powerhouse of educational activities and programs year-round. During the summer months especially, the popular indoor attraction is a fun-filled destination for families and groups of all kinds. Their hands-on activities and exciting events allow guests to engage, be entertained, have fun, learn, and make memories during every visit.
Each year, WonderWorks hosts and participates in various educational activities, both within the facility and out in the community. They host special events, attend science fairs, donate prizes, partner with organizations for fundraisers, and much more to help enrich the learning experience for all. They also work to align their exhibits with K-12 educational standards to provide hands-on activities that relate to what is being taught in students’ classrooms. Students can also participate in art contests, student achievement award programs, and National STEM Day demonstrations to get up close and personal with concepts related to science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM). To help get visitors even more engaged, WonderWorks offers a science scavenger hunt activity booklet. Those who take on the challenge can help uncover a hidden message by answering questions as they make their way through the exhibits.
“Groups of all kinds are sure to love WonderWorks. We’ve got multiple floors of interactive attractions, a full laser tag arena, delicious food, and so much more,” added Joe Baumgartner, general manager at WonderWorks Pigeon Forge.
