We’re always on the lookout for Jammers that go the extra mile with AJ ACADEMY… If you’ve ever completed an AJA experiment/craft and have an image/photo of it, we’d love to see it! You can submit it to AJHQ via JAMMER CENTRAL located in JAMAA TOWNSHIP. Be sure to title your submission AJA – (title of experiment/craft) so our moderators can sort through the submissions.

Imagination Fair – Mathematics Invention

 
DiamondChallenge_5-28_Math
 

Welcome to the 2nd annual IMAGINATION FAIR! The IMAGINATION FAIR teaches Jammers about cool inventions relating to STEM, and challenges them to come up with their very own invention related to each STEM topic. We’ll be hosting these challenges every Saturday for the remainder of May, and rewarding 5 DIAMONDS to each Jammer whose inventions are featured on the DAILY EXPLORER

Here’s how the schedule for this year’s IMAGINATION FAIR plays out:
 

May 7th– Science Invention (due in Jammer Central on May 11th)
May 14th – Technology Invention (due in Jammer Central on May 18th)
May 21st – Engineering Invention (due in Jammer Central on May 25th)
May 28th – Mathematics Invention (due in Jammer Central on May 31st)

Let’s kick off our last IMAGINATION FAIR challenge talking a little bit about Copernicus, a famous mathematician…
 

Copernicus was a Mathematician that used math to create a model of the universe. Prior to his model, people thought that the Earth was the center of the universe. But after his hard work and determination, he found out that our planetary system orbited around the sun. He used some pretty advanced mathematical techniques to determine the way the planets moved, which allowed him to prove that the earth and planets actually orbit the sun!
 

Now that you’ve learned a little bit about Copernicus and his model of the universe, it’s time to create your own MATHEMATICS invention!

1. Draw a picture of your very own MATHEMATICS INVENTION using whichever art/painting tool you have access to. Once you’ve completed your work, save your file to your desktop, so you can upload the file to Jammer Central later.

 

2. Head to JAMAA TOWNSHIP and click on the bulletin board in JAMMER CENTRAL. Explain YOUR INVENTION the open text box and upload your drawing saved to your desktop by clicking the plus sign. Title your submission as Imagination Fair – Mathematics Challenge and click the SUBMIT YOUR WORK button! Submissions for this challenge are due MAY 31st. We can’t wait to see the paw-riffic inventions and good luck earning your 5 DIAMONDS!
