FALMOUTH, MAINE, July 1, 2019 – Thanks to the generous donation of one of our sponsors, High Touch High Tech of Maine will provide a series of summer programs at the Riverton Boys & Girls Club in Portland. This series, Science in Action, exposes kids to different topics of physics including Newton’s Laws of Motion, flight, light, sound, space, and electricity. Kids will discover the amazing properties of air, take a ride on a human gyroscope, launch a rocket, find ROY G BIV, learn the difference between static and current electricity and more!

“Our goal is to reach as many kids as possible in the state of Maine” said High Touch High Tech of Maine owner, Dr. Genia Sklute (known to the kids as Dr. G). To meet this goal, High Touch High Tech of Maine implemented a sponsorship program which provides an opportunity for donors to impact the children of Maine directly. Through the sponsorship program, individuals and companies can sponsor High Touch High Tech programs at non-profit organizations of their choice.

“The programs stimulate children’s natural curiosity for science and fuels their imagination and excitement about learning” Sklute said. Kids come to understand the magical world of science through programs that are aligned with Maine’s Science and Technology Standards and provide hands-on, totally participatory experiences to the kids. “Kids attending the programs don’t realize how much they are actually learning” Sklute said. “They are simply having fun because they are engaged throughout the experience.” The programs build confidence and encourage kids to continue to engage with inquiry.

The sponsor, who asked to remain anonymous, said that “High Touch High Tech programs are a wonderful way to give the gift of learning! This is a highly innovative way for kids to actively participate in science experiences.” As for his specific choice to sponsor programs at the Boys and Girls Club he said, “I am passionate about giving kids from various backgrounds the same opportunities to succeed.”

High Touch High Tech is a pioneer of science education that has been increasing the scientific and technological literacy of children throughout the nation for 25 years while bringing fun, engaging, hands-on science experiences to kids ages 3-12.

Business Leadership: Which One Can You Relate To?

 

Do you exemplify qualities of a successful business leader? Are you a self-starter? Do you excel in creative thinking and execution of new ideas? Where you lucky enough to be born with “business savvy” skills that just seem to come naturally to you? This article explains the six different types of successful business leaders and provides examples of some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs.

The Hustler is an enthusiastic go-getter who can sell just about anything. They are supremely confident and conscientious and won’t let anything stand in their way. Zig Ziglar and Mary Kay Ash are great examples of this type of entrepreneur!

The Innovator is typically always forward-thinking and adventurous. They constantly seek to challenge old ideas, and find new and unconventional ones.

The Machine simply gets things done. Equipped with an aptitude for solving problems and a high level of efficiency, they always deliver quality.  Bill Gates is an example of a Machine Entrepreneur!

The Prodigy is blessed with an inborn business sense and instinct. They have natural intellect, a stoic demeanor, and strong social skills to help guide them to success. Elon Musk is a great example of a Prodigy Entrepreneur.

The Strategist is a creative and tactical thinker. They are always calculating a game plan. Their habit of long term thinking leads to success.  Two notable Strategist Entrepreneurs are Steve Jobs and Martha Stewart.

The Visionary combines new and innovative ideas with the drive and enthusiasm needed to rally the masses behind them. For example, Oprah Winfrey!

These are 6 business leadership qualities that successful entrepreneurs exemplify. Does strategic creativity come easily to you? Are you able to develop creative ideas and deliver those concepts to the world around you? Do you associate with any of the previously referenced entrepreneurs? If so, you might have what it takes to become an accomplished business owner yourself!

 

Kids are Big Business

 

Kids are big business, thanks to parents who are willing to invest in them. From companies that offer preschoolers a head start to tutoring services that help high-schoolers boost SAT scores, or calculus grades, franchises are earning high marks by supplementing the traditional education system. High Touch High Tech Science Made Fun has emerged as a leader in providing hands-on science experiences for kids.

The hottest topic in education right now is STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Students in the USA are falling behind (ranking 25th in math and 17th in science among industrialized nations, according to the Department of Education), and many parents want to reverse that trend.

According to SciencePioneers.org, “Because STEM is so important for our children, our region and our country, we need to encourage the students currently in our educational systems, as well as future generations of students, to understand and embrace the technology that affects them every day of their lives. Students should be advised on the merits of taking as many math and science courses in middle and high school as possible. And these courses need to be taught by engaged and enthusiastic teachers using hands-on and minds-on activities. Making science and math courses fun and interesting will not only help students to learn, but might also plant the “seed of interest” that could grow into an exciting and rewarding STEM career.”

High Touch High Tech with locations across the USA, is busy providing hands-on science in school “field trips” to meet the needs of teachers. Our field trips are a resource to teachers, and valued by parents and school administrators alike.

This demand for more STEM programming is not limited to the USA. High Touch High Tech Science Made Fun has experienced a surge internationally. Currently HTHT has franchise locations in 8 countries. In 2016 High Touch High Tech Science Made Fun will open locations in China, Dubai, Thailand, Sweden, India, and Vietnam. This trend is likely to continue throughout the year. Parents everywhere are seeking to enhance their children’s lives through educational opportunities. High Touch High Tech Science Made Fun is there for parents everywhere.

Why is High Touch High Tech Science Made Fun getting so popular? One of the key differentiators between HTHT and its competitors is curiosity. Our programs are designed to stimulate the imagination and curiosity of children.
