What is the SAVIG Lab? 


 
 
Math and science have historically been an integral part of every culture. Come join in the fun at the San Antonio Virtual and Interactive Geometry Lab (SAVIG Lab) by participating in interactive, hands-on learning activities which present mathematics as a dynamic, culturally significant subject that students of all ages can enjoy. The lessons involve tactile learning activities to stimulate higher order thinking. Classes are available for students from Kindergarten to Graduate School. For K-5 students, there are pre-lessons and post-lessons available for teachers for use in their classrooms upon request.
