2018 – 2019 Activities
STEAM initiative- The Tulsa (OK) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated and their new friends of Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance collaborated to facilitate the M for Math Session. The topic was about Fibonacci. He was an Italian mathematician from the Republic of Pisa, considered to be “the most talented Western mathematician of the Middle Ages”. The 4th grade girls were able to experience hands-on exercises with patterns and sequences in a fun way. The class was very interactive and engaging.
Starter Appliance Kits – The Chapter partnered with Habitat for Humanity to supply starter appliance kits for five new homes built with deserving families during June 2018 to December 2018.
