K-12 Outreach Committee

Mission Statement

In the Eugene and Springfield community we wish to give K-12 females and other minorities underrepresented in STEM fields a positive experience with mathematics. We will also encourage these students to pursue higher education in fields that require advanced mathematics. In addition, we would like to build awareness for K-12 outreach opportunities within the U of O math department.

Science Factory Math Program

The K-12 Outreach committee will be teaming up with the Science Factory to run our 4th Annual Math Day on March 18, 2017. In past years, the girls have spent time engaging with activities that explored cryptography, the Mobius strip, Nim, Towers of Hanoi, minimal surfaces, and much more.
