IUP math camp

Rachelle Bouchat, associated professor in the IUP math department, launched a rocket Friday as part of the inaugural Serafini Math Camp on the IUP campus, amazing students Aurora Hutton, of Blairsville; Eva Nealen,

of Creekside; and Audrey Yang, of Indiana. About 20 middle school students from area schools attended the one-week camp, learning about mobius strips, matrices, flexagons and 3-D printers. The camp is named for Terry Serafini, who was a 1961 graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania and went on to work for IBM, and who provided funding for the initiative.
