Looking for a way to get middle schoolers interested in math ? The Math Explorer will do just that. The Exploratorium, San Francisco’s hands-on museum of science, art and human perception, created these games, puzzles, and science experiments to help kids develop math skills while having fun.
Best of all, you don’t have to be a math whiz yourself. Youth groups and families have tested each activity to ensure that it includes all the information you ‘ll need to help guide your group. Launch rockets, fly kites, make cool things... and learn about math in the process.
The kit contains all the supplies necessary for each activity : carefully selected art supplies and tools; dice, cards, and other gaming pieces; tubing, PVC pipe and other hardware items; calculators, rulers; storage bin.
