Sonia Kovalevsky Day 2021
The Cal Poly Pomona Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics, Sophie's Circle, is teaming up with the Kappa Mu Epsilon - Math Honorary of CPP, CSU Fullerton's SMART Girls, and students from Pomona College. Last semester, the event had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, but Sophie's Circle has decided to hold the event virtually.
The event is aimed towards supporting underrepresented middle school and high school students, especially young girls, with their interest in mathematics and other related fields and encouraging them to pursue such interests. The volunteers will be leading activities involving mathematical concepts to demonstrate how mathematics is relevant to the world outside of regular classroom problems. We hope to be able to ship students an event t-shirt and math-related book.
