Welcome to the Festival!
talkSTEM is proud to have worked with Southern Methodist University (SMU) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to make #Mathfinder a reality! Did you know that April is Math Awareness Month? Let’s show our youth that each of them is a math person and that math is alive and kicking in their favorite places and activities from sports to dance, from playgrounds to downtown! We’re excited to show off all the ways you can find math in the world around you. To learn more about our Mathfinder project, click the button to the right.
We’ve organized many fun activities across our partner sites, which you can easily access below. As you engage with the various Mathfinder activities, keep track of what you’ve found by clicking the sheet below and printing a copy!
