Investors Bank Treats Kids to a Magical Math Show
More than 400 Englewood students enjoyed a fun morning of math and magic at bergenPAC, thanks to the Englewood branch of Investors Bank.
Located at 108 Engle St., Investors Bank provided a grant to sponsor the March 7 MatheMagic! show, which is part of bergenPAC’s School Time Series. The sponsorship covered the tickets for the Englewood students, who were joined by 500 kids from other towns. Investors Bank also gave out Frisbees to everyone.
MatheMagic! starred Bradley Fields, an internationally renowned magician. He drew his audience in with magic illusions before revealing the secrets behind startling math tricks. Without realizing it, the students were practicing the critical thinking and problem-solving skills they use in the classroom.
“Investors Bank was proud to sponsor such a wonderful show that benefited so many youths in our local school districts,” said Stacey Goldberg, the Assistant Vice President Branch Manager for Investors Bank’s Englewood branch. “It was terrific to see smiles on all these children after the show.”
The School Time Series runs from the fall through spring with productions held during the school day aimed at different age groups. The shows focus on a variety of curriculum subjects, like language arts, history, science and math.
