"Build Like Banneker… with Math!"

with Shelly Jones

Friday, November 3 at 6:30 pm ET

(in person)

Construct a working clock just like Benjamin Banneker did in 1752!  His clock, believed to be the first built in America, kept precise time for decades.  Inspired by this mathematician and astronomer, and guided by Shelly Jones, math educator and President of the Benjamin Banneker Association, your family will huddle together to create mathematical expressions, symbols, tables, and graphs to represent the sequence of numbers on an analog clock as you design your very own timepiece to take home.  Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to “Build Like Banneker!”

Thanks to the generous support of Two Sigma, this program is free to attendees.
