The time to volunteer is now.

It was a great experience for all of us, and all the kids I talked to seemed genuinely excited and engaged. Can’t wait for next year!Festival Volunteer

The 5th Annual Julia Robinson Festival is coming February 25, 2017. We need mathematically capable and enthusiastic adults to help us run activities, explain games, and spread the word! Sign up now if you can volunteer to help us make this festival a success.

Volunteers will need to be available from 11:30 to 4:30 on February 25, 2017, plus for several hours of training either the night before or the morning of the festival. Volunteers all receive a T-shirt. Honorariums may be available, depending on our funding.

Sign up now and help spread the love of math in Seattle!

The Julia Robinson Festival was fantastic and I felt like it really changed some kids’ perspectives on mathematics. Those who had really doubted their math abilities and never saw themselves sitting down doing math for fun were surprised at their own abilities.Festival Volunteer

About the festival: The Julia Robinson Festival is challenging but noncompetitive, highlighting rich mathematical problems curated by adults who love math. It’s a perfect place for students who like math, games, or puzzles, for contest-goers looking to see what else math is about, and for students who prefer the collaborative, noncompetitive aspects of math to contests. Go to http://juliarobinsonmathfestival.org/ to learn more.

The Julia Robinson Festival runs only if we receive the financial support to make it happen. Join the University of Washington’s Math Department and support this one-of-a-kind mathematical experience.
