Event Details

Mountains, Models, and Math in the Museum

Saturday, November 17 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Grades 4 - 8

Use Museum exhibits to explore the connections between science and math. Workshop activities will focus on the concepts of ratio and proportion in two adjacent exhibits: Making Models and Math Moves! (The latter is a new exhibit that encourages algebraic thinking and practice.) Mathematical challenges will be posed as you consider scale models. We'll also share additional resources to support Common Core Mathematics concepts as well as literature and language arts connections. And we'll provide you with suggestions for planning a field trip; it's important to keep the proportions just right!

Museum of Science

The Museum takes a hands-on approach to science, engineering and technology, attracting about 1.5 million visitors a year via its programs and 700 interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, 3-D Digital Cinema and Butterfly Garden. Reaching 25,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. The Museum’s “Science Is an Activity” exhibit plan has been awarded many NSF grants and influenced science centers worldwide. Its National Center for Technological Literacy® aims to enhance knowledge of engineering and technology for people of all ages and inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors, and scientists. The Museum is ranked #3 by Parents Magazine in its list of the country’s “Ten Best Science Centers." For more information, visit mos.org.
