Resource fair for kids who love math

 

What is a math circle? Why do some kids think of math camp as their second home? Do you have to win competitions to be "good at math"? What can I offer my third grader who loves math but is bored in school?

At this resource fair, you'll learn about a range of opportunities and resources for kids who love math. Hear directly from--and chat with--people who are at the forefront of educating kids who love math.
