EDUCATION

How Children Learn Math & Science – February 18

Math and science are often thought of as difficult and challenging subjects that prevent students from being successful in school; but what if new methods of teaching these subjects appealed to students’ natural curiosity?

Join CU professors Edd Taylor and Valerie Otero tonight to discuss these approaches, the rationale behind them and how they can help students feel empowered. They will also discuss parents’ shifting roles in a somewhat unfamiliar space. Wednesday, February 18. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

Auditorium ADA accessible restroom project continues

The brick path running east to west through the Centennial Garden will be closed to pedestrian traffic for the next several weeks as this project continues. A path will remain open on the west side of the garden to access the Chautauqua Green and Dining Hall.

This project, managed and funded by the City of Boulder, will feature a six stall restroom with ADA accessible accommodations for both men and women. The restroom will be completed in mid-May for the start of the 2015 Chautauqua Auditorium season.
