Peru State College School of Ed to Host Math/Science Brain Quest Program for Area Elementary Students

 

(Peru, Neb.) The Peru State College School of Education will host its fifth Math and Science Brain Quest program for third graders on Wednesday, Nov 19.

 

PSC teacher candidates, under the direction of Education Instructors Gina Bittner and Darolyn Seay, have used the Nebraska State Standards for Mathematics and Science to plan activities with the goal of helping young students realize that math and science are life-long skills that can be applied in fun and engaging ways. Students from Hayward Elementary in Nebraska City will make their way through games and activities such as Fraction Pizzeria, Shop ‘til You Drop, Place-Value Race Around, Fanatic About Static, Matter Batter, Mystery of the Missing Shape and Slime Holler.

 

Dean of Education Dr. Jodi Kupper said, “The School of Education places a high priority on collaboration with area P-12 school districts, and we will enjoy hosting these elementary students and their teachers on our campus. The event is a featured part of our elementary education program each semester.”

 

Bittner said, “Brain Quest is an exciting event, not only for the elementary students who join us each semester, but also for the teacher candidates and instructors. Teacher candidates have the opportunity to hone their skills in the areas of math and science while students get to experience learning in a hands-on and interactive format.”
