Math Mania and Bio Buzz
Math Mania & Bio Buzz is a popular alternative science education event sponsored by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences and the University of Manitoba. It welcomes grades 2 to 5 and is free and open to the public.
Math Mania & Bio Buzz presents interactive demonstrations, puzzles, games and art. It is usually presented in a school gymnasium after school for about 90 minutes. It requires about 20 volunteers. New activities are added each time. The volunteers are university students, faculty and staff from PIMS University site, or volunteers from nearby high schools. This effort is an experiment in using peer instruction to potentially recruit to PIMS universities and encourage students to explore math and science.
