Eating well…saving energy…bike safety. It doesn’t exactly sound like summer vacation, but kids all over Portland are laughing, learning, and earning the title “Smarty Pants,” with the Smarty Pants traveling game show.
Surrounded by fast food, bombarded with messages encouraging us to buy more stuff, living in a world where everything seems to be designed to be disposable, the choices that lead to a healthy life can get awfully confusing.
Smarty Pants is the FREE roving arm of the Educational Theatre Program (ETP)—a partnership with Kaiser Permanente. It gives audiences of ALL AGES a chance to test their knowledge and learn new information about how to make healthy choices. And kids are eating it up!
“I learned that skin is the largest organ.”
“I learned that you need to get 60 minutes of exercise”
With Smarty Pants, ETP has realized a goal of year-round programming. The flexible format means that groups with specific needs can request a Smarty Pants version that is tailored to their specifications; and that these important messages can reach kids outside of traditional school assemblies.
Smarty Pants can be found at select Portland Parks & Rec Summer Meals Program sites, SUN schools sites, and community centers throughout the summer. SEE SHEDULE HERE.
