Event Details

Stand in the candy aisle at any store, and you will soon realize all of the different geometric shapes being represented. Learn how candy can be a creative alternative choice to use when studying geometric relationships, area, volume, density, reverse engineering, and several other STEM-related concepts. Candy relates to students much more effectively than the traditional widgets that have been used in the past.
