WEAR ABC Channel 3 - CRAM THE VAN “RIDE FOR THE KIDS” BIKE RUN

CRAM THE VAN “RIDE FOR THE KIDS” BIKE RUN

Rev your engines, it's time for the Ride For the Kids Bike Run! The ride will benefit Cram the Van, an annual school supply drive for students in need in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. On Saturday, August 2, riders from the Gulf Coast Chapter of the ABATE of Florida, Inc. will travel from Sandy Sansing Mazda to the WEAR ABC 3 Studio, and they want area bikers to join the fun.

Registration and a cookout starts at 3:30pm at Sandy Sansing Mazda. Registration is $10 per person and a donation of schools supplies for local children in need. KSU "kick stands up" starts around 5:30pm. Riders will then take a short ride to the WEAR ABC 3 studio on Mobile Highway in time for the 6pm news. An after party featuring live music by High Horse Band will be held at Night Train Tavern in Milton.

Cram the Van, which is sponsored this year by WEAR ABC 3, Sandy Sansing Dealerships, Papa Johns Pizza and United Way, has helped Escambia and Santa Rosa students succeed for 15 years. The cost of purchasing items like backpacks, calculators, binders, pencils, paper, glue and notebooks can be overwhelming for families struggling with the basic necessities.

For more information on the Bike Rally, contact Russ "Danger Russ" Dieterich at 850-450-6116. For more information about Cram the Van, call United Way at 850-434-3157.

WEAR ABC Channel 3 - AN EVENING WITH ALFIE KOHN

AN EVENING WITH ALFIE KOHN

Creative Learning Academy in partnership with the University of West Florida will present An Evening with Alfie Kohn at the Artel Gallery on Friday, August 8. A reception will be held at 6:00 pm with the lecture starting at 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

Alfie Kohn is an author and lecturer who has explored a number of topics in education, parenting, and human behavior. He is considered a leading figure in progressive education. Mr. Kohn will be speaking on Performance vs. Learning: The Costs of Overemphasizing Achievement.
 
Kohn has been described in Time magazine as "perhaps the country's most outspoken critic of education's fixation on grades [and] test scores." His criticisms of competition and rewards have helped to shape the thinking of educators -- as well as parents and managers -- across the country and abroad. Kohn has been featured on hundreds of TV and radio programs, including the "Today" show and two appearances on "Oprah"; he has been profiled in the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, while his work has been described and debated in many other leading publications.
 
Kohn lectures widely at universities and to school faculties, parent groups, and corporations. In addition to speaking at staff development seminars and keynoting national education conferences on a regular basis, he conducts workshops for teachers and administrators on various topics. 
 
Admission is FREE. Please RSVP to Creative Learning Academy at 850-432-1768. To learn more about Alfie Kohn, go to www.alfiekohn.com.


WEAR ABC Channel 3 - PENSACOLA MESS HALL

PENSACOLA MESS HALL

The Pensacola Math, Engineering and Science Stuff (MESS) Hall has switched to summer hours to offer kids and families more time to explore Math, Engineering, Science & Stuff, with changing themes throughout the summer months. Pensacola MESS Hall is now open Tuesday - Saturday from 10am - 5pm and Sunday 1pm - 5pm.

Summer Camp registrations are underway for parents looking for ways to keep the kids busy, having fun and learning. There is a wide variety of Pensacola MESS Hall Summer Camps which are half-day, week-long themes to interest kids, grades 1-9. Popular camps include the Science of Sailing, Inventors Workshop, and the Code Academy, which teaches the basics of programming in Scratch. Morning sessions are from 9am to noon and afternoon sessions are from 1pm to 4pm. For a complete camp schedule and to sign-up, go to pensacolamesshall.org or call 1-877-YES-MESS.

July 29- Aug 3:  Kitchen Science. Discover the science that goes on in your kitchen every day. A special presentation on kitchen chemistry will be a feast for the eyes (and the stomach).

Aug 5-10:  Space week. Explore the universe around you with special mess kits and the unveiling of new space images. The week will end with a bang with a bottle rocket workshop.

The Pensacola MESS Hall is not a typical science museum. Founded in 2012 by Dr. Megan Pratt and located at 116 N. Tarragona Street in Downtown Pensacola, the MESS Hall lets visitors get to work like real scientists, developing questions and creating experiments, engaging in and learning science through tinkering. Its all hands-on science. Rather than exhibits with planned outcomes, the Pensacola MESS Hall is designed like a cafeteria, with a menu of mess kits that changes daily.
