Shrinky dinks are a great physical representation of reduction dilations. Come be the student in this mock-PBL night where you will create your own Shrinky Dink as a keychain, pin, or earrings!

As the mock student, you will use Google slides to make a design including dilations, explain the mathematics in your design, and create a physical shrinky dink.

Open to all WKU Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni, and Teachers

Participants will receive professional development certifications.
