What is Blockfest?
BLOCK Fest™ is a research-based exhibit that helps raise awareness of early math and science learning by offering hands-on block play experiences to families with young children. Parents, preschool teachers and the community will become more knowledgeable about the importance of early math and science learning as it impacts both school readiness and later math success
- BLOCK Fest™ is a family interactive event that uses five block play stations to introduce children and their parents to the educational value of blocks.
- At BLOCK Fest™ parents learn about early math and science concepts and that early math learning is a strong predictor for school readiness.
- Parents discover how they can help their children learn early math and science concepts while they play with blocks through guided play and conversation.
- BLOCK Fest™ also educates communities about the short and long-term importance of early math and science learning.
