This program will introduce the hobby of Beyblade to GES students and give those who are fond of it a place to feel welcome. Beyblade is a competitive game where spinning tops are launched into a stadium and clash until one is either left in the stadium or spins the longest. This game involves strategy, physics, knowledge of how moving objects (in this case, spinning tops) react, and good sportsmanship. All of which provide students with a positive learning experience.
