Volunteers are needed for Wonderland Math and Physics Day on May 13!
Here’s a description:
Every year ESSCO teams up with Canada’s Wonderland in Vaughan to encourage all high school students from Southern Ontario to learn about Math and Physics through the marvels of engineering that are known as rollercoasters.
Students are given questions from a standard assignment binder put together by Wonderland, and they walk around the park, solving the assignment questions by riding the rides and making observations. There is also a marble roller coaster design contest, where students, who have built their own miniature roller coasters, can compete for prizes.
ESSCO volunteers are needed each year to help the students with the assignment questions through both guidance and referral to the answer key. They are also responsible for judging the roller coaster contest.
What they didn’t mention is you get a FREE day at wonderland out of this for volunteering! AND a pass to return any day in the regular 2011 season!
To volunteer fill out the form here BEFORE April 18th:
There is also a T-Shirt design contest, submissions required before April 8th:
Math & Physics Day is May 13th, and we’re looking for some awesome shirts & name tags ideas so we can show the high school students how awesome Engineering and ESSCO are! This is a great way to get involved, even if you can’t volunteer at the actual event. Get out your pens & pencils and get creative!!
- Including ESSCO mascots (pineapple or flamingo) is encouraged
- Include the words “Math and Physics Day”
- Graphics related to Science, Math and/or Engineering
- Back or shirt design optional, but if designed, must have ESSCO logo visible
- Resolution of at least 300dpi
For the name tag, keep in mind that it will be 3.5” in height and 4.3” in length, and should have room for volunteer’s names, and the word “volunteer”.
Submit your design(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 8th. If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact me at the above e-mail address, or Ryan at email@example.com.
