Mike and Tyler hit the ground running in January, and have managed to pack the last 11 months with some BIG adventure. From racing go-karts, to troubleshooting science experiments these two have one motto, “Go BIG or go home!” That go big attitude and consistent hunt for the next challenge, is what makes this dynamic duo our November Match of The Month! Congrats to you both, we can’t wait to see what you do next.
These two love trying new things and exploring the world around them. They recently conducted a science experiment, creating non-newtonian fluid and then playing speakers underneath it to make it move in patterns. While doing the project, Mike figured out the best way to get the goop safely onto the speakers so they could watch the way it interacted with sound. Tyler shared that they wouldn’t have been able to do the experiment without Mike figuring that out. Experiments and problem solving like this Ignite Potential, by encouraging curiosity and building confidence.
Mike has a competitive spirit and Tyler tries to foster that as much as possible. One day while they were playing ping pong together, they decided that a new game was in order, so they made one themselves. They came up with new ways to use the paddles, set up cups as goals, and worked together to create a new way to compete. Using creative thinking to challenge growth Empowers Potential by not only teaching a child to think outside the box, but giving them the confidence to totally reinvent institutional norms.
This match agrees that their motto, “Go BIG or go home,” does more than sum up who they are as a match, but also applies to the way they both want to live life. One of the goals of our program is to help youth develop the life skills and confidence they need to understand their Limitless Potential, and the strength and resiliency they need to stand and Defend it. With a Big like Tyler in his corner, to challenge and encourage him, Mike is well on his way to doing just that. Congrats again on being the Match of The Month, gentleman. Whatever your next adventure might be, we know you will go BIG!
