On Tuesday 19th September, a group of 18 young Mathematicians aged between 11 and 13 years participated in a Maths Camp at Saint Paul’s Catacombs, in Rabat. The event was organised by the Science Centre Pembroke within the Directorate for STEM and VET Programmes , in collaboration with Heritage Malta.
The Maths Camp, which brought together students with a keen interest in Mathematics, aimed at providing the students with an opportunity to collaborate in teams, think creatively and communicate mathematical ideas. Some of the students engaged in a Maths Trail involving mathematics questions whilst others investigated Pythagoras Theorem and its application in real life.
During the event, personnel from Heritage Malta gave a presentation to the students on bones, explaining the difference and similarities between human and animal bones and the information these remains provide to archaeologists.
