IU East to host upcoming Family Science and Math Fun Night

March 3rd, 2008

The Indiana University East Division of Natural Science and Mathematics invites middle school-aged students along with their parents and families to a fun night of learning.

Fifth and sixth-grade students, along with their families, are welcome to participate in the program scheduled for Monday, March 10. The program will be held from 6-8 p.m. on the IU East campus in Whitewater Hall, room 201. Each family group must include an adult over the age of 21.

The department will conduct fun and educational experiments, games, brainteasers and puzzles.

Originally developed by the University of California, Berkeley, the Math Program uses hands-on materials to help students and parents to develop number sense, problem solving strategies, estimation and logical thinking skills. Family Science was developed by the University of Oregon and provides a non-intimidating path to learning scientific processes and concepts.

The event is free but reservations are necessary. For more information or to make reservations, call the Division of Natural Science and Mathematics at (765) 973-8285.
