Having MSTE Friday Lunch withdrawal? Or maybe you missed Natalya Zielnicki's fabulous presentation the first time around? Either way you'll want to check out the new video that was just posted to the MSTE Office YouTube Channel: "What I Learned from Art About Teaching Math".
This year the Computer Science track of the Girls’ Adventures in Mathematics, Engineering, and Science (GAMES) summer camp for high school girls is in the hands of MSTE’s own Jana Sebestik and Samantha Lindgren, along with help from Rebecca Byrd and Elizabeth Diamond. Throughout the week, camp attendees will explore app creation, e-textiles, and digital forensics. After several days of in-class lessons and a fieldtrip to the Champaign-Urbana Community Fab Lab, the girls will have acquired the skills necessary to venture out and complete a self-selected project.
