Families to taking part in activities is a key factor in determining access to STEM success for the next generation.
London, SE England (PRWEB) July 29, 2011
Whether readers are a local to London, and looking at keeping children entertained and educated positively over the holidays or whether they are visiting or writing for families from another part of the country or even the world – this is a great story about family entertainment linking to education.
Maths-Whizz is taking the lead to practically avoid summer learning loss and working within the informal STEM (Science English and Mathematics) guidelines, will be showcasing in and around London this August. This fits in strongly with government recommendations that beyond the classroom, the inclination of families to take part in activities is a key factor in determining access to STEM success for the next generation.
Maths-Whizz will not be charging for these events. The days will however involve some great numeracy activities linked to the fun rides and Lego shapes at Legoland and the Museum’s superb collection of historical artifacts, from the stone age to the sixties ( something for the parents!).
Maths-Whizz Family Fun Day highlights include:
- T-shirts and sticker give-aways
- Activities and worksheets that support numeracy for children over the long summer holidays
- Cuddly Mascot fun
- Time actively engaging with this superb online learning programme on laptops provided
- An education surgery, run by an expert who will be available to answer general educational questions
Please come and join the Maths-Whizz Team and our fabulous cuddly Maths-Whizz mascot. There is no need to register. Just turn up!
