The VICM has teamed up with qualified mathematicians and undergraduate peer instructors from the University of the Virgin Islands to assist adolescents with math tutoring and board game strategy. All attendees can enjoy a snack/meal and play carefully chosen games known to help with developing critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Professional life coaches from Elevate-Wi will also provide opportunities for students to speak with life coaches while building their interpersonal communication skills through play.
The first Teen Time night took place on Friday October 7th, during which we welcomed over 45 teens and their parents/guardians. Future Teen Times will take place from 5:30-7:30pm tentatively on the following dates. Be sure to visit www.vichildrensmuseum.

Gaming is one of the most promising educational formats to quickly reach a large and diverse set of learners. However, as young people are required to spend a great deal of time on computers, it is important to provide avenues for hands-on interactive experiences via logic building and communication enriching games. We aim to incorporate gameplay into informal STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math) based learning experiences while providing avenues for social and emotional expression.
