Math, Science, and Technology Night
Oakview’s Family Math, Science, and Technology Night will be February 11, 2016, and we need your help!  We are looking for 6 businesses who are in related math/science/technology fields who would be willing to either:
a)  set up a small demonstration/activity for parents/students to stop by and visit
b)  give us materials and/or a display related to your company’s math/science/technology connections to display in one of our rooms for you. 

This is a perfect opportunity for the students to make connections to real-world careers in these fields, as well as for your business to get some extra exposure with our community.  If you are willing to help us, please contact Charnley DeMeritt at cdemerit@greenville.k12.sc.us or leave a message at 355-7159.  Thank you for supporting math, science, and technology at Oakview!
