The Iowa State University Sonia Kovalevsky Girls Mathematics Day is a day to celebrate #womeninmath by showing middle school girls the kinds of careers and applications higher mathematics and science can provide.  The event is on Saturday, April 9 from 10:00am – 2:00pm at Carver Hall, Iowa State University Campus, Ames, Iowa.  Participants will engage in hands-on activities through a series of workshops on exciting math topics and will have the chance to interact with other participants, mathematics graduate and undergraduate students and mathematics professors. Events will include a keynote speaker, fun hands-on activities, lunch (provided), and small group mentoring sessions with female mathematicians where participants will learn about magic squares, zombie outbreak models, and hexaflexagons.

Student families are responsible for transportation to and from the event, but lunch and a t-shirt will be provided to all attendees. The event is free, but registrations are due by Thursday, March 31, 2022 here:

The event is open to female and non-binary middle school students and their teachers, both men and women.  Teachers as well as parents/guardians are welcome to join their students.

Summit Garden Club Needs Your Help!
