Our holiday shopping is done! Now we have to wrap our gifts, but Jamal has some oddly shaped gifts. We will help him figure out surface area. We will also be lighting up your holidays with this Young Entrepreneurs Academy graduate Venita D'Angelo. We will find out why she started her company Light Essentials and what it is all about.

Hosts:  Craig Zaremba and Donna Mineo

The Rochester Museum & Science Center will be stopping by with Portis, a Russian tortoise. Jamal is having a hard time estimating how much wrapping paper he needs for his oddly shaped gifts. We’ll look at how an object’s surface area impacts how much wrapping paper Jamel needs.

Hosts:  Craig Zaremba and Sam Simpson

History teacher Howard Krug will be here to tell us about the Bill of Rights. We will also continue looking at surface area with Jamal and how he uses his new knowledge to help him figure out the surface area of a gift he wants to make.

Hosts: Joe Zuniga and Sam Simpson

The Rochester Museum & Science Center will be here with another science experiment. We will also be finishing up our lesson on surface area by helping Jamal figure out the surface area of irregular shapes.
