In our continued efforts to provide students with a better understanding of mathematics, EAGL director Dr. Sean Lawton participated in the Harlingen Career & Education Expo that took place October 13, 2011 in Casa de Amistad. Dr. Lawton participated in the expo from 9am-1pm and spoke with over 50 students about hyperbolic geometry and topology. Demonstrations included topology tricks in play-doh, visual explanations of hyperbolic geometry in crochet, and various computer visualizations. The Harlingen Education and Career Fair Committee sent a letter of appreciation to Drs. Lawton, Maruno and Pierce for participating.
