If you are a high school girl with an interest in mathematics, this event is for you!
Each year, Rose professors and math majors invite high school girls to campus to participate in engaging and interactive sessions, which pay tribute to Sonia Kovalevsky – a pioneer for female mathematicians.
The free event is sponsored by the Department of Mathematics and the Rose-Hulman Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM).
