Even before Brody had been on a roller coaster, he was fascinated by them. When he was eight years old he asked for a K’NEX kit for his birthday and with lots of help from his Mom and Dad, assembled his first of many models. Soon his mom was searching for used sets to keep up with his building fervor, and his Dad was spending weekends with him riding roller coasters together.
It’s been eight years since he constructed that first model, and Brody continues to pursue this passion. He is learning about architecture, construction, and safety while also gaining important knowledge in physics, math, design, policy, and history...and his joy in this learning is palpable. It is the purpose that continues to drive him today.
When we encourage our kids to explore what interests them, then expose them to those interests, we’re also helping them find their purpose...and a lifelong love of learning and growth and not living in your basement when they’re all grown up! 🤦🏽♀️ 🤦♂️ .💯 🤓 🔥
