@ Discovery: Maker Math

dsc_1390In June 2016, Discovery Museum used a grant from the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) to offer a series of hands-on lessons we called, “Maker Math” focused on applied measurement. Classes were offered to 2nd-4th grade students at Inter-District Discovery Magnet School. These dynamic lessons challenged students to measure, design, make, and test items of their own choosing to fit a small stuffed monkey. Using measurement to do something open-ended allowed for remarkable creativity.
