Stilwell helps launch upcoming Show Math season
Dr. Moira Stilwell, Parliamentary Secretary for Industry, Research and Innovation, addresses VanTech students gathered to watch two scenes from Show Math, a multimedia production that uses humour and pop culture to help high school students see how mathematics relates to their daily lives. The show will tour B.C. schools starting this fall. It’s an outreach program of Mitacs, a Vancouver-based research network that creates and manages research and training programs. The Province has invested .1 million in Mitacs programs to date.
