BC Summer Reading Club: BC has more than double the participation rate of most of the rest of Canada
Interesting blog post:
“As we gear up for a new season and change of pace in the library, it’s time to take a close look at our Summer Reading Club statistics. Another great year of passion and energy in support of kids’ reading and learning – the impact is significant, and we in BC have lots to celebrate with our 25 years of Summer Reading Club success! ”

Family Mathematics & Science Day will take place @ UBC Faculty of Education on Saturday, October 15, 2016 (10:00 am – 12:30 pm).
Science and Mathematics Educators and students from the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy, Teacher Education Program and the rest of the Faculty of Education community at UBC invite guests from 2 to 102 years old to help us celebrate mathematics and science. The Mathematics and Science Family Day will focus on exciting hands-on and minds-on mathematics and science activities suitable for all those with curious and inquiring minds. Mathematics and Science Days have become a great tradition that connects our faculty members, students, Teacher-Candidates and community at large with the excitement of mathematics and science learning and teaching. Parents, grand-parents, children, community members, and teachers are welcome to attend!
