Edmentum Edstravaganza

Friday, July 12, 2013 -- Kristin Flynn

A new spin on bring your child to work day!

Edmentum welcomed over 80 children to learn more about how we support students’ academic success with our inaugural Edstravaganza and we had a blast!

This event provided an opportunity for our extended Edmentum family to help support our efforts by spending a day with us and our products! Children participated in student observation labs and shared their thoughts about what they learned. The feedback obtained will be used to help ensure our products are meeting the needs of even our youngest users.

In addition to experiencing our products first-hand, our young visitors had the opportunity to take part in several other activities:

  • Job Shadowing – Whether interested in instructional design, product development or marketing, there was something for everyone to learn from an Edmentum expert.
  • Scholastic Athletes – A fun and interactive quiz kept our young family members thinking hard and running fast!
  • Advertisement Posters – The artistic young aspiring marketing professionals used their creativity to design advertisement posters of their favorite Edmentum product.
  • Storytelling – Our youngest attendees listened to stories from our Reading Eggspress library and discussed the importance of reading.

An office tour, facepainting, and a scavenger hunt were also among the activities.

Edmentum Edstravaganza was a huge success and we can’t wait for next year! Thank you to everyone who helped to make this a memorable event for the kids and the Edmentum staff.
