We are committed to expanding and supporting the network of future women mathematicians. Many of our members organize and participate in outreach activities aimed at K-12 students as well as undergraduates.

Julia Robinson Volunteers 2020

Julia Robinson Math Festival

Our AWM chapter hosted our first Julia Robinson Festival at Cornell University on February 29, 2020. Fourth through twelfth graders participated in mathematical games and activities in a collaborative small group setting facilitated by Cornell undergraduate and graduate students. We have continued to hold a virtual JRMF every year since then. This year's JRMF included activities for 4-8 graders and was held on March 27th, 2022. We hope that our 4th annual JRMF can be held in person again in Spring 2023!

Expanding Your Horizons

Expanding Your Horizons

Expanding your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day conference for 7th-9th grade girls which usually takes place in April. The goals of the conference are to stimulate the participants’ interest in math and science through hands-on activities, to provide them with female scientist role models, and to foster awareness of opportunities in math and science-related careers. Members of our organization have been organizing a math-themed workshop as part of the conference since 2013. If you are interested in volunteering for EYH 2022, send us an email .

Girls' Math Circle

The Ithaca Girls' Math Circle consists of groups of girls in Grades 4-12 who meet on campus every weekend for around 2 hours. The focus of the group is on preparing girls for math competitions by offering a fun, intimate, and socially comfortable environment to explore mathematics, and building math competence with other like-minded girls. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Eglantina Lucio-Belbase.
