MVP Mason Chng and event dream team: Stefany Espinoza, Megan Do, Ella Basken, Laura Choi, Naila Hajiyeva spent the day on the 2nd floor of Wel on the University of Texas Campus for STEM Girl Day. Mason has been preparing the activity for Girl Day for months in and between our other projects, and the whole MathHappens Team pitched in. STEM Girl Day at UT Austin is hosted by the Women in STEM (WiSTEM). The event impacts well over 15,000 elementary and middle school students, parents and relatives, teachers, and Girl Scout Troop Leaders. Over 250 “Heart = Square + Circle” transformers are now in the possession of event participants!

In addition there were Puzzle a Day calendar puzzles, and some really cool transformation puzzles. Thanks to Melissa Wilkinson for making two trips back to the office for more hearts. We were surprised by the numbers but always delighted by the enthusiasm of the participants.
