STOKE and The Lodge of Townsend combine to bring Snapology to Townsend

   STOKE (Science, Technology, Outdoors, Knowledge, Entrepeneurship) and The Lodge of Townsend have combined to bring Snapology to Townsend.

"At Snapology we believe that children are meant to learn through play. When children are engaged in interactive, hands-on learning activities, their creativity flourishes and they show an increased interest in school.  We help your child grow up with a thirst for knowledge. How do we do it? Snapology engages children ages 2-14 using LEGO® bricks, K’Nex and technology. While the kids are having fun with familiar toys, laptops and iPads, we sneak in the learning. Shh, don't tell them it's educational!".

To Learn more about Snapology click here "What is Snapology"?.

On Tuesdays starting November 2nd, there will be a Snapology program "Amusement Park Engineering" for kids 3rd grade to 5th grade. The program will run until January 11, 2022.

On Thursdays starting November 4th, there will be a Snapology program "Combat Robots" for 6th through 8th grade that will run until December 16, 2022.
