Mixtape Mondays

How can an educator benefit from Complexity Theory? What are the gender dynamics in a STEM classroom? In this Mixtape Monday, we will be joined by Mario Eraso. Dr. Eraso will discuss the intersections of mathematics and computational thinking for middle school children. 

Mario Eraso, Ph.D. participates in STEM outreach activities for elementary and secondary schools, provides students with academic support, and assists faculty with including educational components in grant proposals. Dr. Eraso has written academic papers and book chapters in which he highlights several of his innovative educational tools such as a three-slope scooter ramp and a roof-like structure called the penta-hut.

There are several types of retirement plans to choose from, and each type of plan has advantages and disadvantages. This workshop covers the most popular plans.

You should also know that the law may permit you to have more than one retirement plan, and with sophisticated planning, a combination of plans might best suit your business needs.

If you are considering a retirement plan for your business, this Lunch & Learn workshop will help you determine what works best for you and your business needs.
