The Department of Mathematical Sciences hosted approximately 240 fourth grade students from Tradewinds Elementary in Coconut Creek on May 8, 2018.
The program began with a welcome and a short quiz followed by Dr. Tomas Schonbek's team contest. After lunch, students will be treated to an educational demonstration presented by former science teacher Glen Govertsen. The demonstrations, part of the “Mr. G Science Show,” combines the dynamics of music, lasers, raw eggs, fiber optics and other materials with clear explanations to motivate students in science and mathematics.
Educational mathematics game prizes will be awarded to both individual and team competition winners.
