CLU to co-sponsor last in Discovery Center for Science and Technology Science Speaker Series
"Mathomagical Moments" comes to Westlake Village
Tuesday, April 19, 2011
The Discovery Center for Science and Technology is scheduled to present the fifth and final presentation in its "Science Everyone Can Understand" Science Speaker Series. "Mathomagical Moments" is scheduled for Thursday, April 28, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. at Baxter Biosciences in Westlake Village. For more information and tickets, visit the website.
Sponsored by Baxter Biosciences, Time Warner Cable, California Lutheran University, and EARTHS Magnet School, "Mathomagical Moments" will feature Glen Whitney, Executive Director of the Museum of Mathematics.
The museum, a new nonprofit cultural institution created by Whitney, was recently awarded a $2 million development grant from Google, and just signed a lease for 19,000 square feet near Madison Square Park in Manhattan. The goal of the museum is to spark kids imaginations and convince them that math is a lot more fun than rote memorization and long division.
