Event Details


Presented by: DRANREF Foundation

The Abacus Project invites teachers to help students explore Asian culture, while enhancing their thinking and creativity skills, through the construction and application of the world's oldest calculator. Teachers make their own abacus using beads and craft sticks and learn how to employ the ancient number system to perform basic operations. At the conclusion, teachers will receive an easy to follow lesson plan to share this hands-on, metacognitive experience in their classrooms. This activity helps develop students’ concentration, fosters creativity, and inculcates the habit of careful observation, sound reasoning, and original thinking – all integral to the artistic process.
