Founders of Project Based Learning Organization To Tour Southern California Theme Parks Promoting Science Education
Orinda, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/27/2014 -- The CoasterDad Project announced today that founders Will and Lyle Pemble plan to tour amusement parks in Southern California in support of Project Based Learning, and Physics and Science Education. Founded in 2013 by the Entrepreneur Will Pemble, The CoasterDad Project builds backyard roller coasters, conducts science experiments, and travels to interesting destinations teaching parents and kids about their particular brand of "Physics, Family, and Fun," according to the The CoasterDad Project website. Recently, the Youtube videos created by The CoasterDad Project have begun to gain traction and are showing signs of viral growth and popularity.
"The CoasterDad Project appeals to Education Technology and Project Based Learning advocates because we've made it easy and fun for kids to learn the physics of roller coasters. Those science and math skills transfer nicely to everyday life. We also appeal to reality tv audiences because building backyard roller coasters is just plain crazy. We have a lot of doing it, the videos show ordinary people doing extraordinary things, and that makes for great viewing," says Will Pemble.
Following on the success of their Website and Youtube Videos, Pemble and his son will visit theme parks in Southern California, and publish a video episode every day from March 31 through April 5, 2014. "We know not every kid can go to five theme parks in a week. So, we're going to do everything we can to take them with us through the videos," says Pemble.
Twitter and other social media are also abuzz with mentions of The CoasterDad Project, with organizations supporting @edtech and @PBL Liking, Sharing, and Tweeting about the organization.
CoasterDad.com was founded by Internet Entrepreneur and Consultant Will Pemble. The organization teaches elementary math and science concepts to kids through exciting projects including the design and construction of backyard roller coasters. The CoasterDad Project will take this mission one step further by crowdfunding the creation of a backyard roller coaster for a family who might not otherwise have such an experience.
