"Final Look at 2016: School, Science and Education The biggest shocker on the world stage without a doubt came in the form of one Mr Donald J. Trump who bulldozed over one very, very ambitious Hillary Rodham Clinton in the November United States Presidential Election by gobbling up the lion's share of electoral votes-this despite her securing nearly 3 million more in the popular vote territory."

New to Minnesota, Jennifer Schuetz from the Fractal Foundation brought fun fractal activities, or fractivities, to Math On-A-Stick last summer. Younger students had the opportunity to learn how the Sierpinski triangle is a fractal - by repeating a simple pattern over and over again, smaller versions of the same pattern are created. Older students created…
