The UO Youth Enrichment and TAG Program is offering mathematics, engineering, the future and lively theater classes on November 25 -27 for grades 1-6.  All three days offer topics to engage students’ imagination, problem-solving abilities and joy in discovery with a cohort of other enthusiastic learners!

You can register for classes and pay by credit card on our website at: http://uoyetag.uoregon.edu/

Mathematical Fun – Monday
Grades: 1 – 5
Date: November 25, 2013
Time: 9:30 – 12:00
Location: UO Campus 1533 Moss St.
Instructor: Steve Nastasiuk
Cost: $30.00

Spend the morning with your mathematically adventuresome friends solving familiar and new puzzles, exploring numbers, geometries and choosing math activities and games that engage your love and curiosity for all things mathematical!

With many high quality math activities to choose from, you will be able to use and develop your creative reasoning and problem solving abilities, communicate mathematically and apply your discoveries.  Work independently or with a friend (or more) and stump the teacher when you can!

Design, Engineer and Build – Monday
Grades: 1 – 5
Date: November 25, 2013
Time: 12:30 – 3:00
Location: UO Campus 1533 Moss St.
Instructor: Steve Nastasiuk
Cost: $30.00

Use K’nex and other tools to explore why roller coasters can keep going higher and faster.  Is there a limit?  What does the K’nex BIG BALL FACTORY have to do with gravity, friction, acceleration and potential energy?

And what do engineers need to understand about building bridges?  Did someone say BATS (Beams, Arches, Trusses and Suspensions)?  Design and build your own sample bridge.

Use the scientific method in all of your experiments and inquiries into weight, gravity, friction and acceleration. Ask why, make predictions and test your designs. Surprise yourself, your friends and share your discoveries.

Ever imagine what life will be like 50 . . . 100 . . . 1,000 . . . 10,000 . . . 1,000,000,000 years from now? Here’s your chance to find out!  In this workshop we will build future worlds using your imagination to explore what human civilization could look like many years from now. Here’s your opportunity to design a school of the future . . . create a spaceship equipped to travel faster than human thought . . . solve world problems like pollution and war. Let your imagination soar!  We will also listen to stories from around the world that illustrate important values for all human cultures as we make models, dioramas and posters to demonstrate your ingenuity. You will be able to work independently, in pairs or small groups. And may the force be with you!
