Lead Speaker:
Kathleen Cage Mittag
Gilbert Naizer


Let’s do a fun activity integrating math, science, and technology by exploring the concepts of heat, temperature, measurement, statistics, and modeling. It will be open-ended, allowing participants to develop their own procedure for determining how to calibrate an unmarked Celsius thermometer to measure the temperature of a glass of tap water.
