The Brewton-Parker College Math and Science Division conducted its semi-annual Math and Science Festival on Saturday. More than 100 area students from kindergarten through 12th grade participated in hands-on math and science projects.
The event, in conjunction with the Heart of Georgia Youth Science and Technology Center, was held in the Morgan-Moses Building.
“ We had 98 children sign up during the festival,” said Dr. David McMillan, chair of Brewton-Parker’s Math and Science Division. “This does not count parents and teachers. More children came to the festival, but did not sign in for the event. We had one group come by the bus load.”
This event provided a fun Saturday morning that was free. Around 40 Brewton-Parker College students were involved in helping plan and watch over an activity.
Students participated in a math bingo game, solved a crime, watched Diet Coca-Cola become a volcano, play soccer to figured out math problems, made necklaces, looked at fossils, and other very interesting games and activities.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the day, whether young or old. Many were excited to see what they could participate in next. Saturday proved to be an exciting, educational day that children will remember.
