The description below has been provided as Math Catchers' morning and afternoon workshop description:

"The Math Catcher Outreach Program: No Fear and Hands-on Mathematics

Abstract: The Math Catcher Outreach program aims to promote mathematics and scholarship in general by encouraging elementary and high school students to recognize how math is used in everyday life and how it forms the basis for many of our daily decisions and life-long choices. The storytelling, pictures, models, and hands-on activities encourage young people to enjoy math and help dispel myths that math is boring and solely abstract. The program has a strong First Nation component."
