2014.01.25. Kids' Tech University. "How can mathematics help us understand certain diseases of the eye?" - An interactive session led by Dr. Erika Camacho. MLK Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Summer co-director of the Mathematical & Theoretical Biology Institute (MTBI).


Kids’ Tech University is a semester-long event! Four sessions are held in the Winter/Spring timeframe, like a normal university semester. Each session is an all-day event that consists of an interactive morning session centered on answering a question about the world around us, a break for lunch, and an afternoon hands-on component featuring the Virginia Tech professors, students, clubs, and community. Kids can take part in the virtual labs and forum after the all-day event to continue to cultivate their interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
