Math and Science Discovery Day
by Miriam Keller
On Saturday, March 4, mothers of third and fourth grade girls were invited to participate in math and science activities at Hopkins Junior High School. Participants signed up for several sessions and moved from adventure to adventure throughout the morning. Mothers, grandmothers, and aunts attended with the girls. They participated in a morning of fun, hands-on math and science adventures.
For 14 consecutive years Miriam Keller has created, developed, and coordinated a Mother/Daughter Math & Science Discovery Day. Traditionally girls have not been well represented in the math and science fields. Her goal is to provide opportunities to motivate them to continue their math and scientific interests. In the past girls have been kept from recognizing their ability to pursue math and science careers. Miriam wants to help break these barriers.
