El Centro Hosted the 25thrd Annual Math, Science, Technology Day at CSU on 10/9/15

El Centro hosted the 25th MST Day event, on campus, in conjunction with the College of Natural Sciences, Warner College of Natural Resources, 4-H & Cooperative Extension. The Laurel Village Living/Learning Community graciously provided space for the entire event. There were a variety of events held by supporting departments on campus—including Mathematics (*), which hosted four of the sixteen workshops, as follows:

Workshop

*Math in Motion
*Twisty Turny Knots
*Mayan Math
*Fun with Fibonacci

Scratch Programming
Colorful World of Guppies
Motion Commotion
Sound Science

The participating students/attendees enjoyed a Quetzalcoatl Aztec Dance Group (a cultural dance) presentation by NOCO volunteers, before participating in a Physics presentation by Dr. Brian Jones, after lunch.

This is an exciting event for local underserved fourth graders who we hope will start thinking about their futures and attending college (hopefully, CSU), as they progress into their middle and high school years. This event is great community outreach & a showcase of the many talents at CSU.

Special thanks to all leaders & Volunteers attending, from Math: Dr. Paul Kennedy, Dr. Patrick Shipman, Dr. Henry Adams, Dr. Roberto Munoz-Alicea, Math Noyce Scholars, Math Club members, Graduate Student leaders: Zach Flores, Ben Sencindiver, George Boreleske, Catalina Camacho, Rebecca Cooper, Jessica Gehrtz, Samuel Pine, & Tim Hodges, Dean Bisogno, and anyone else I may have missed!
