WonderWorks Pigeon Forge Announces Fun Fall Family Programs

 

WonderWorks TN has a variety of educational opportunities for the fall

 

WonderWorks Pigeon Forge has plenty of fun educational activities and opportunities for families to check out this fall. There are programs for everyone in the family to enjoy and offerings that educational groups won’t want to miss out on. From the youth art contest, Homeschool Days, WonderKids Nominations and more, WonderWorks is a can’t miss spot for students and families this fall. 

 

“Although our annual art contest is a relatively new program, it is already a favorite of both our guests and the WonderWorks team,” says Joseph Baumgartner, general manager of WonderWorks Pigeon Forge. “We can't wait to see what our local students have created! Winning art pieces will be viewed by thousands of visitors annually." 

 

WonderWorks Pigeon Forge offers over 100 hands-on interactive exhibits all year long. These exhibits are related to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) topics, while still providing all-day fun. Additionally, WonderWorks strives to provide unique programs that align with their mission of sparking the imagination and inspiring the next generation of scientists, leaders, and creatives. They offer limited-time activities that will enhance students’ learning experience and get young people interested in science and art. 

 

Here are the 2022 fall programs at WonderWorks Pigeon Forge:

 

  • Youth Art Contest - Local student artists are invited to enter the annual art contest for a chance to have their work displayed in the SMART: Smoky Mountain Youth Art Gallery inside WonderWorks. Students, teachers, or parents can submit artwork on the website. This year's contest theme is "Brought to Light," which explores what happens when thoughts, theories, and fantasies are given a chance to shine.
  • WonderKids – This student achievement program spotlights the accomplishments that students make in the categories of "Strength through Adversity" and "Future Scientist." Those interested in science and learning can be recognized for their hard work. Teachers can nominate students online beginning November 7, 2022.
  • Field Trips – WonderWorks Pigeon Forge is offering interactive, educational field trips for school groups, homeschool groups, sports teams, after-school programs, educational organizations, and more. The facility offers two floors of exhibits that combine fun and learning. Educational add-on opportunities, group rates, and lunch options are also available. More information on the field trip program can be found online.

 

“If you’re a local teacher who has a student with a passion for the sciences or who demonstrates resilience in the face of adversity, be sure to nominate them as a WonderKid this November,” says Kerensa Archer, education sales manager of WonderWorks Pigeon Forge. “We want to inspire students to keep up the great work!”

 

WonderWorks Pigeon Forge offers 42,000 square feet of “edu-tainment,” billing itself as an amusement park for the mind. It offers over 100 hands-on exhibits covering natural disasters, space discovery, imagination, physical challenges, a far-out art gallery, and a light and sound zone. They also offer birthday party packages and corporate event space. For more information, visit https://www.wonderworksonline.com/pigeon-forge/.
