Alejandro talks about the mathematical puzzles and workshops / interactive shows that he passionately provides to help foster excitement of mathematics in children.
He also discusses the MathCatcher program which he is involved with, that provides curriculum and workshops to aboriginal kids to help them achieve success in math.
For more information about Geoburst, including the cool puzzles such as the “Tensegrity” shown in the video, as well as how you can invite Alejandro to give a workshop for your school, please visit his website at: geoburst.ca
