Yoyo Pro Demonstrations
Incredible Teaching Demonstrations
Treat your students to an unforgettable lesson in physics, skill toys and fun.
The outline for Air Traffic's yo-yo demonstrations was developed using Air Traffic's 20+ years of yoyo knowledge and combining it with our yoyo expert's skills and vast experience. This combination of knowledge and skill creates an interactive, educational and exciting event. Air Traffic's provides these demonstrations in an effort to help the children in our communities enjoy skill-based learning in a fun, approachable environment.
How the Program Works
Spend an afternoon with the Pros.
Two of Air Traffic's Yoyo Pros will come to your school for a 45-minute demonstration, highlighting the science, skills and history of yo-yos including:
-The mechanics, including the spin and how a yo-yo works,
-an introduction to the five styles of play,
-an opportunity for hands-on instruction for some of the students (varies with class size), and
-demonstrations of some amazing tricks!
-Students also receive a list of tricks to help them stay motivated to continue to learn and develop long after Air Traffic's Yoyo Pros stop teaching.
It's not just a toy, it's a skill.
The act of learning to use a skill toy, in particular yoyos, exercises multiple regions in the brain and enhances both individual development and group social development. We've seen better school cohesion, and socialization across age groups and cliques. Students see the basic principles of physics in action, improve their hand-eye coordination, and are encouraged to showcase their skills and perform in front of their peers.
