Family Library Time: Hot Wheels Speedometry @ Crestview Library Tickets
Jan 25 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Family Library Time: Hot Wheels Speedometry @ Crestview Library | Crestview | Florida | United States

One of my fond childhood memories is playing with matchbox cars with my dad and little sister.  We’d race them on the floor, pretending to be the Dukes of Hazzard, until they went under the refrigerator and had to be retrieved by the yard stick.  I don’t know how my sister and I knew anything about the Dukes, as I’m fairly certain we did not watch the show, but we’d squeal with laughter while we played.

No one can argue that matchbox cars are fun, but why not learn math and science with them?  The Military Child Education Coalition has partnered with Mattel to bring STEM learning to families through Hot Wheels® Speedometry™.  Playing with cars, tracks and more, students learn how to evaluate and interpret data while using the concepts of physics.  According to a 10-year-old boy, “Speedometry™ was so fun that I didn’t realize I was doing math.  It taught me that math isn’t always hard and could be fun!”

Sound like something your kiddo could use?  Send RSVP with the number of children attending to ptop.panhandle@militarychild.org and then come to the Crestview Library on Friday, January 25 at 6 p.m.  We should finish by 7:30 p.m.  Space is limited to the first 40 children ages 6 and up registered.  Please call 682-4432 with any questions.
