SMYRNA, Tennessee— The Smyrna Outdoor Adventure Center (SOAC) will introduce a new educational exhibit for children and families on February 2nd: Hands-On Harley-Davidson.
Hands-On Harley-Davidson was made possible by a grant from The Harley-Davidson Foundation and invites children to explore a pretend motorcycle dealership while learning about the people, places and processes that make a community work. The exhibit’s pretend retail setting features two kid-sized motorcycles inspired by a Harley-Davidson Road King® and opportunities to “Dream It!,” Build It!” and “Ride It!” using activities that promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
The exhibit’s educational content reflects developmental milestones set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and national academic standards for school-age children. Signage in English and Spanish helps caregivers understand how the exhibit experience supports STEM education, literacy, social development and a child’s awareness of related careers.
The exhibit and a 40 minute climb time are included with SOAC admission. Hours of operation and admission are as follows:
Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Adults (ages 13 and older): $7.00
Children (ages 3 – 12): $5.00
Children under age 3 are admitted free of charge
