Outreach Events

AWM hosts several outreach events a quarter, but our members are also very involved in related outreach organizations, including:

  • M-Pact, a UCD math department organization led by Elena Fuchs which runs hands-on, thought-provoking math activities every week at the Smythe Academy, a junior high school in the Twin Rivers School District in Sacramento, with the goal of diversifying the mathematical community.
  • STEM for Girls an annual event hosted by the WRRC for encouraging middle-school-aged girls to do STEM. See more at this page.
  • Math Circle , a student-run, volunteer-based outreach program for NorCal high school and middle school students, focused on exposing young people to beautiful and intriguing mathematics that is often left out of standard curricula and reserved for math majors at university.

Saturday, May 5th, 10am-12pm, STEM for Girls

This is an annual program which brings local girls to the university for a day to share with them the joys of STEM. They participate in fun science-related activities, hosted by various STEM departments at Davis, such as seeing the particle accelerator on campus, the Bohart Museum of Entomology, and having fun in a series of workshops at the Student Community Center (SCC). AWM will host an interactive knot theory workshop. Contact us to get involved!

Fall 2017

Tuesday, October 24, Lee Middle School:

We visited Lee Middle School in Woodland, and taught a small group of girls about math. It was fun and inspiring! In future quarters, we'll be visiting other local middle and high schools as well as Girl Scout troop meetings, with hopes of teaching young minds about math, and encouraging girls to continue learning about STEM fields. Contact us to get involved in upcoming visits!
