Brain Boosting Events and Activities During NJEA Convention

It’s coming! That long 4-day weekend when the kids are bouncing off the walls and always looking for something to do (or climb on in my family’s case). What am I talking about? Teacher’s Convention of course! It’s a weekend full of fun and learning for teachers so why can’t it be the same for kids?

Just because kids don’t have school, it does not mean the learning has to stop! There are so many fun brain boosting events and activities for kids of all ages to enjoy. Better yet, they can continue learning and growing as students and individuals. After researching what is available in NJ that offers kids and family a fun learning experience, I came up with this list of events. As more events arise, it will be updated so make sure you check back frequently!
