Invest Aurora’s spotlight article this week features Chasewood Learning. The Aurora business uses a variety of interactive activities such as legos and robotics to help children explore and learn how things work. Starting at age six, children engage in learning about space, animals, and simple machines. As they grow from children to high schoolers, they are immersed into advanced subjects like robotics, complex machines, and programming. During the summer months, Chasewood Learning hosts approximately 60 camps. Once the school year starts the business stays busy by offering afterschool programs in various locations in Chicagoland.
Business owner, Will Wong, says that his business is focused on teaching his students to be creative, active learners and problem-solvers. He believes that supporting children with these skills will help them in school and ultimately find employment in adulthood. One of the business’s strengths is how it uses fun activities as a tool to educate the students. Their manifesto is focused on supporting children to be systematic, active and collaborative learners. In addition to operating Chasewood Learning, Wong is the national organizer of World Robot Olympiad. The non-profit organization is a global robotics competition with more than 60 participating countries. Contestants design, build, and program robots to complete specific challenges. The idea behind the organization is to promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. Wong likes being in Aurora because of its friendly environment and passionate parents that care about their children’s future.
Whether you’re a parent that wants their children to play and learn or an educator looking for afternoon activities for students; Chasewood Learning is the right fit look you. Also be sure to attend World Robot Olympiad 2016 USA National Championships. The event will be Sept., 4th at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center.
