SKILL STUDENTS LEARN GEOMETRY THROUGH LANDSCAPE DRAFTING ON SDSM& T CAMPUS: TREES, BUSHES AND FLOWERS NEEDED TO COMPLETE PROJECT
Twenty SKILL students from across South Dakota are learning geometry on the SDSM& T campus this summer through an innovative math curriculum approach. The SKILL students are drafting an area to scale on the Tech campus and then developing a landscaping plan for that particular area. The students then plan to plant trees, bushes and flowers in the area they have drafted to scale. Donations of trees, bushes and flowers are needed for completion of the landscaping project.
SDSM& T’s SKILL ( Scientific Knowledge for Indian Learning and Leadership) Program is designed to develop innovative approaches to hands- on math, science and engineering education with a special emphasis on Native American students. Anyone interested in donating trees, bushes or flowers for the SKILL landscaping project on the Tech campus should contact the SKILL office at 394- 2467 before June 20th
