PAST&E is excited to spend a week during winter break playing fun educational games! Our PAST&E coaches are creating a variety of games featuring geography, art, science, reading and life skills to challenge, inspire and delight young minds. Can you solve a Rubik's cube? Where are the highest and lowest points on Earth? What's the difference between flora and fauna? Do you prefer pointillism or pop art? All these questions and more during Game On, PAST&E's winter programming.
