Making Girls Part of the Equation

Women have been historically underrepresented in the mathematical sciences, and we want to help change that. Our first annual Sonia Kovalevsky Math Day for Girls will include activities on graph theory, cryptography, and more, as well as a discussion on careers and opportunities for women in mathematics--and pizza! If you are a high school girl with an interest in mathematics, this event is for you. 

Registration has closed for this event.
