Seattle MathFest is a city-wide celebration of elementary school communities and math, hosted by Seattle-based nonprofit Zeno. This is a one-of-a-kind event where elementary students and their siblings play math games, win prizes and have fun. While playing, students build their confidence in and enthusiasm for math.
How does Zeno do this?
With a carnival, of course! Teachers, kids and their families walk into a festive setting, greeted by friendly volunteers at the check-in table. From then on, it is all fun and games. Kids move from one table to the next playing different games; they can roll dice, play cards or jump on a giant bar graph. They might guess the number of human ears that can fit into the size of an elephant ear. No matter what games kids chose, there is a high probability of them leaving the event with just a bit more love than loathe for math.
Whether you are an educator, family member or a student, you will find ways to see, touch and experience math at Seattle MathFest.
Come see for yourself on November 7th from 5.00 pm to 8.00pm at the Rainier Community Center. Skip the lines and register now!
