The classroom can be a drag, but don’t let that mentality follow you outside of school. For Eastview Senior High School students who are trying to find a new hobby, whether for leisure, entertainment or academic purposes, there are plenty of things to do in and around Apple Valley and throughout the great state of Minnesota — you just need to know where to look. So if you’re trying to stave off boredom and find something new to sink your energy into, take a look at some of these great activity ideas, perfect for Eastview High students.
Participate In An Eastview Activity Club
There are a number of different clubs for Eastview students to join, from religious-based organizations to sports leagues to video game competitions and much more. For those that don’t find something on the list that grabs their attention, why not start your own social club? Regardless of your hobbies, whether it’s photography, automobiles, music or anything else, starting from scratch allows you to mold the organization how you see fit. And with the power of social media, you’re almost guaranteed to find like-minded people who share your interests.
Build Your Own Computer
More and more, tech-savvy individuals are moving from an out-of-box computer product to a custom-built PC, that’s built to highly specific specs. This allows you to craft a machine that’s built for video games, designing content on Adobe programs or making music through a program like ProTools. Regardless of what your end goals are, building your own computer can be a highly challenging and rewarding experience, one that will teach you a lot about assembling hardware and coding an operating system.

Enjoy The Area’s Attractions
Although there are countless fun things to do in Apple Valley, the city’s top attraction is the massive Minnesota Zoo. You’ll find 485 acres of preserved habitat, featuring animals like penguins, pumas, monkeys and even a new polar bear. They also accept high school student volunteers, giving you the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with your favorite wildlife. Another great activity for high schoolers is a trip to the Apple Valley Aquatic Center, where you can lounge on the lazy river, relax poolside or push your limits on the many waterslides.

Beyond Minnesota, there are many wonderful trips in the midwest that make an easy trip for a first-time traveler.
