Maths-Whizz Announces STEM inspired Free* Summer Fun for All the Family this August
Maths-Whizz loves teaching students Maths online. However, over the last few months we have also discovered that practical Maths-Whizz experience days are a great way to supplement numeracy confidence and skills for all the family.
So, whether you are a local to London, and looking at keeping children entertained and educated positively over the holidays or whether you are visiting from another part of the world – Whizz Education is delighted to announce a series of Family Fun Days, working with two of the UK’s top family attractions.
Maths-Whizz is taking the lead to practically avoid summer learning loss and working within the informal STEM (Science English and Mathematics) guidelines, will be showcasing in and around London this August. This fits in strongly with government recommendations that beyond the classroom, the inclination of families to take part in activities is a key factor in determining access to STEM success for the next generation.
The fun kicks off at Legoland in Windsor on the on the 15th, 16th and 17th of August. The following two family fun days will be held at the Museum of London at the Barbican in the City of London.
Maths-Whizz will not be charging for these events. The days will however involve some great numeracy activities linked to the fun rides and Lego shapes at Legoland and the Museum’s superb collection of historical artefacts, from the stone age to the sixties ( something for the parents!).
Maths-Whizz Family Fun Day highlights include:
• T-shirts and sticker give-aways
• Activities and worksheets that support numeracy for children over the long summer holidays
• Cuddly Mascot fun
• Time actively engaging with this superb online learning programme on laptops provided
• An education surgery, run by an expert who will be available to answer general educational questions
Please come and join the Maths-Whizz Team and our fabulous cuddly Maths-Whizz mascot. There is no need to register. Just turn up!
