Beyond being exciting and engaging, experiential learning is research-proven to lead to long-term academic success. Children who learn through doing have been shown to better retain information by up to 63%. More importantly, they discover why what their learning matters and how it can be applied now, in real life, in real ways.
The unforgettable magic of an amazing field trip.
Learning by Doing
"Experiential learning is an engaged learning process whereby students 'learn by doing' and by reflecting on the experience" (BU Center for Teaching and Learning). At The Magic After-School Bus, this idea is at the heart of everything we do. Each adventure follows the steps of Kolb's Cycle, guiding little explorers from conceptualization to experimentation, through authentic experiences and culminating in reflection.
