So much is still in the air with school schedules and after school programs this year, parents everywhere are scrambling for activities and after school options to keep kids engaged and off the couch…Smart Buddies “Afterschool-In-A-Box” to the rescue!
Smart Buddies (pictured above) are a diverse set of characters on programmable scooters that kids, ages 6 and up, can code to zoom, spin, race, and dance – all while learning how to code! With “Afterschool-In-A-Box,” kids attend live Zoom classes for four weeks with counselors, teachers, and fellow students – meeting for twice-a-week activities, social fun, and assignments.
At the end of the program, kids get certified as a “junior coder,” and have new skills and knowledge to bring into their classrooms when they do attend. Smart Buddies “Afterschool-In-A-Box” is $249.99, a fraction of what families would spend sending their children to in-person STEM programs.
