Over the last few years, many of our students have had the opportunity to experience the hands-on interaction at INK's Children's Museum. Their activities include role playing and getting first-hand experience at being a banker, dentist, doctor and more.
Since INK is here in our community, having fieldtrips to INK enables more of our students to be exposed to the interactive exhibits and is appreciated by our students, teachers and parents.
I want to support Interactive Neighborhood for Kids!
Gainesville City Schools seeks to connect academic instruction in the classroom with "real-world" and life experiences. In doing so, we need to connect the classrom to their future world of work. Interactive Neighborhood for Kids has provided the structure and means for us to accomplish this goal for our young students.
A variety of careers and skill-sets are presented to our students when they visit INK. The INK staff is knowledgeable in applying teaching methods with hands-on learning during the classroom visits to INK. It is through the INK experience that our young students identify future career possibilities and being to set goals for themselves.
We strongly support the work of INK!
The Benefield Elementary School Advisement and Counseling department provides a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate counseling program to students. It is our aim to connect academics with the world of work. The Interactive Neighborhood for Kids (INK) has been instrumental in helping our efforts for three years. The knowledgeable staff and hands-on-experiences that INK offers are unparalleled. Research indicates that career exploration during the elementary years positively impacts graduation rates.
More now than before, our counseling department needs INK for hands on career awareness and learning.
We advocate for INK wholeheartedly.
Both us parents and our kids had a great time at the birthday party. Is is a wonderful educational environment for kids to roam and play. Thanks so much!
