Family Math & Science Day @ UBC Faculty of Education

Sixth Family Mathematics & Science Day will take place @ UBC Faculty of Education on Saturday, October 15, 2016 (10:00 am – 12:30 pm). 

Science and Mathematics Educators and students from the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Teacher Education Program and the rest of the Faculty of Education community at UBC invite guests from 2 to 102 years old to help us celebrate mathematics and science. The Mathematics and Science Family Day will focus on exciting hands-on and minds-on mathematics and science activities suitable for all those with  curious and inquiring minds. Mathematics and Science Days have become a great tradition that connects our faculty members, students, Teacher-Candidates and community at large with the excitement of mathematics and science learning and teaching. Parents, grand-parents, children, community members, and teachers are welcome to attend! Our previous Math and Science Days at UBC Faculty of Education have been very successful. They attracted hundreds of children and their families and more than 60 volunteers (annually) many of whom are Teacher-Candidates who come to share the love of mathematics and science with the larger community. The 2014 event broke all the records – we had more than 350 guests and more than 80 volunteers. We hope to have a great attendance in 2016 as well.

Registration: If you are interested in attending, you have to register here (the event is free but the registration is required!)

Mathematics is fun for young children exploring the concepts of measurement and volume conservation.
