VALDOSTA – The College of Arts and Sciences and Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Valdosta State University recently presented Science Saturday: Adventures in Mathematics and Computer Science.

Children of all ages participated in such activities as origami folding, programming through games, robotics, creating high quality websites in minutes, building model airplanes from cardboard, doodle science, going binary and playing to win with Nim, and more.

Science Saturday is supported by VSU’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Initiative and is part of an ongoing effort to inspire the next generation to want to learn more about these areas.

According to the United States Department of Education, only 16 percent of American high school seniors are proficient in mathematics and interested in a STEM career.
