Spirit Radio and Kids Guide Talk Science and Math Activities for Kids!
Spirit Radio weekend presenter Jacki Ascough asked Kids Guide Chief Cheer Leader Geraldine Smythe to talk about fun kid activities related to science and math around Ireland this summer.
Geraldine talks with Jacki about Kids Guide and our mission to share the fun! Jacki asks about summer planning for getting the best opportunities for your child for great camps.
Jacki says “kudos to you, Geraldine, for putting this together because I think it’s long overdue and it’s great to have somewhere where parents can go to get some great ideas instead of having to do a long, drawn-out search and finding absolutely nothing!”
