Making learning fun is like administering a pill to a dog: it works best when potential benefits are wrapped in tantalizing, bacon-flavored disguises. Add a surreptitious spoonful of sugar with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of educational supplies at Adventures In Learning on Gateway Boulevard.
Adventures in Learning supplies students and teachers with the tools for exciting educational opportunities, and sponsors events such as Generation 2000, the largest children's fair in the Southwest. In addition to hosting summer camps and interactive field trips, Adventures In Learning features an extensive retail store, where puppies and old dogs alike can pick up nifty new tricks.
Discover the perils of enraging smithy gods with the volcano kit, which includes fast-drying plaster, a mold, paint, and a brush for adding careful detail to unsuspecting cave trolls along the volcano’s ridges ($11.30) (baking soda and vinegar not included). Slap down monster-matching cards with the colorful Dweebies card game ($13.56), or allow culinary-curious cubs to make a pizza with equipment from the pizza kit, including a pizza pan, nylon knife, and recipe ($22.60). Kids can draw their own racetrack with the Doodle-Track Car and pen ($16) and marvel as vehicles soar over land, sea, and sleeping siblings.
