Numbers Lady to promote STEM in Barbados and Dominica by invitation of the US Department of State

Barbados

Dr. Rebecca Klemm, also known as The Numbers Lady, has been invited by the US Department of State to lead programs in Dominica and Barbados June 1 to 8, 2014. The focus is on teaching principles of math and science through sports.  By learning about the timing of a sprinter’s run, inflation of soccer balls, holding the bat, speed of a tennis ball, etc., teachers and coaches will learn how to create lessons for their students that use the scientific method to explore the math that underlies everything we do, even sports.  Over the course of the week she will lead workshops, lectures and public events for a variety of audiences, including students, parents, teachers, and coaches.
