Quest can easily be added to any after school program. Our badge requirements are written so that several age groups can all work together on the same subject. Using the badges as individual unit studies, the kids have an opportunity to learn about subjects that may not have time to be covered in the classroom. Your school can use the badge requirements listed to help plan and implement your after school program, while purchasing the badges themselves can be up to each individual parent if you wish.
Just a few fun examples include days like the following:
Bubble Day: use our Bubble badge to teach the kids how to make their own bubble solution; how to blow giant bubbles; how to make bubble blowers out of everyday objects; how bubbles are used in science and technology, and about surface tension and other scientific principles.
Physics Week: Use the ideas in the Physics badge and make paper airplanes and marble runs and hold an egg drop contest.
Character Badges: Work on badges that enhance character traits you wish to see in your kids such as responsibility, anti-bullying, and diligence.
