Come to Seattle MathFest 2011!


Bring your family to experience Math like you’ve never seen it before!
Explorations in Math is hosting its 5th Seattle MathFest, that brings together over 1,000 elementary-age students, parents, teachers, school administrators, and community members to help kids build confidence in and enthusiasm for math through interactive games in a carnival-like setting. Mark your calendars for Nov. 3rd at Rainier Community Center!

Come experience squeals of delight, high-fives and a chorus of cheers as you work your way through 21 stations to play math with your family!

MathFest will take place on Thursday, November 3rd
5:00 p.m.-8:00p.m.
Venue: Rainier Community Center at 4600 38th Avenue S. in Seattle.

In the face of declining results in STEM achievement in Washington State, Explorations in Math is working to counteract the negative culture that has been built around mathematics early in life. Through their programs, they work to change beliefs, behaviors and attitudes to build a strong foundation in math in the lives of children in the Seattle area. MathFest is the only event of its kind that provides elementary school students, parents, teachers and the community with hands-on opportunities to explore and celebrate math achievements in a festive setting.

The free event is open to participants in Explorations in Math’s partner schools, community programs and to the public.

To register, visit: or contact Explorations in Math at 206-325-0774.
