- Short Description:  Sonia Kovalevsky Day - April 10, 2011
This project seeks to engage young women through a variety of hands-on problem solving and learning activities. High school aged women in Iowa are invited to a day-long program featuring workshops and opportunities for social interaction among peers who share a passion for math. The Sixth Annual SK Day at the University of Iowa will be held on April 10, 2011. This year's theme is "Math is Life." Sonia Kovalevsky Day will consist of engaging sessions, math games, and a career panel. Participants will receive a tee shirt, lunch and snacks, a certificate of participation, and the opportunity to win many other great prizes! (See our website for a complete list of sponsors.) There are also parallel parent-teacher sessions with fun learning ideas and information about mathematics in the undergraduate curriculum. There is no cost to attend this event. The registration deadline is Thursday, March 24th, 2011.
