This year, WFSU’s Summer Challenge is all about adventuring outdoors! Join us for our 5th annual Challenge Kickoff event. Our Alert Today Florida WFSU Summer of Adventure Celebration happens on Saturday, June 2nd (10am-2pm) and is the place to launch full-force into this year’s summer learning adventure.
WFSU will host a plethora of outdoor adventure activities including:
- Making glow-in-the-dark fireflies
- A constellation craft
- “Fishing” games
- The Gulf Specimen Marine Lab’s mobile touch tank
- Indoor camping fun
- Making s’mores
- PBS KIDS Summer Screenings with special guest speakers
- Activities hosted by our event partners
- A special visit from PBS KIDS’ very own Nature Cat!
- And more!
At the kickoff event you will have to opportunity to register to participate in the WFSU Summer Challenge 2018, which is a self-paced online/offline collection of activities, crafts, and learning fun designed to help fight off summer learning loss!
If you agree to participate in the WFSU Summer Challenge 2018 you’ll receive an official checklist and your 2018 edition Community Classroom Consortium (CCC) Passport to Adventure, which focuses on exploring in nature and music. For each stamp you receive for visiting a neighbor organization — either in-person or virtually — you’ll get points on your Summer Challenge Official Checklist, making you eligible for more goodies at the end of the summer!
At the end of your summer of adventure, you’ll submit your passport to WFSU. We will tally up your points and invite you to our special Summer Challenge Wrap-Up Celebration (yes more celebrating!), where we’ll honor your dedication to fighting the summer slump by awarding certificates and giving out prizes!
This project demonstrates how WFSU/PBS KIDS and Tallahassee community partners join forces to keep you and your family engaging in informal, educational programming throughout the summer months.
Not sure you can commit to the Summer Challenge 2018, but still feel like joining us and our friends for a party that is all-things-outdoors? We’d still love to see you at our Celebration on June 2nd!
