We would like to thank you for supporting 2019 Family Math and Science Day that took place at our Faculty on October 19, 2019. It was a big success. We had an unprecedented number of guests – 627 and almost 150 volunteers. We had many Chinese Educators from our international programs visiting us as well. It was an amazing day with hundreds of mathematics and science stations, days and days of preparation and hours of work, but also lots of fun. This year we had a number of elementary Teacher Candidates who were also involved. We had fun!
We are grateful for your support. This event has always been a collaboration and it would not have happened if not for amazing faculty and staff we have at our Faculty and our friends and family who support us outside of the Faculty. We would like to acknowledge all of them, but here we can only mention a few people who came to support us and who supported our amazing TCs on the day and during the preparation.
