What is Challenge Island?
Challenge Island is a red hot and fast growing international educational enrichment franchise on the forefront of S.T.E.A.M. Education and 21st Century Learning. Founded by award-winning educator, author, and freelance parenting/education journalist Sharon Duke Estroff, the program takes children on exciting imaginative journeys to an array of thematic islands. Each island is made up of numerous whimsical “destinations” where children work in collaborative tribes on action-packed challenges using only the materials in their treasure chests and their creativity From chemistry to art, engineering to music, and geometry to mythology, the “island” format allows for enormous flexibility in offering cross-curricular material while developing communication, collaboration, and flexible thinking skills for elementary school-age kids.
