HAYS. Kan.--Fort Hays State University's Math and Science Education Institute invites kids to play with water and "Make a Splash with Math" during the FHSU Mathematics Camp, June 18 to June 21.

The Mathematics Camp, held in Rarick Hall on campus, will help kids entering grades five through seven become more familiar and confident in their math foundations. By using basic math skills, they can contribute to the conception, design and creation of a water park.

Starting at 8 a.m., campers will interact with peers and instructors on campus who will help them grow confident in their use of math by introducing them to the construction of water parks, from water slides to concession stands.

The camp will end at noon each day. At the end of the four-day program, the children will celebrate their success by playing exciting, water-based games.

The deadline to register for this fun water experience is June 6. Registration costs $60 per child, but need-based financial assistance is available upon request. Space is limited to 30 children. Online registration is available at www.fhsu.edu/smei/camps under 2012 Math Camp Flyer.

For more information, call the FHSU Science and Mathematics Education Institute at 785-628-4168 or email smei@fhsu.edu.
