|Kids' Tech University (KTU) sparks kids' interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through a hands-on activity, virtual lab, and interactive session, held once a month from January to April, in a lecture hall on the campus of Virginia Tech, Virginia State University, or Bowling Green State University. Each KTU event centers on answering a "why" question; those with a mathematical focus, some archived with presentation slides, have included "How Much Work Could a Network Net if a Network Could Net Work?" and "How Can Mathematics and Computers Help Us Understand Why Cancer Cells Misbehave?" and "Patterns are Everywhere! How and Why?" and "Why is Mathematics like Magic?" and "Why are some Computer Programs so Frustrating?" and "Why do Doctors Need Math to Treat Diabetes?" See also the Virtual Kids' Tech University's labs on fractals and patterns.|
