Mission & History

MathHappens is dedicated to creating math models and supporting development of mathematical experiences outside of the classroom. MathHappens was founded in fall of 2014. We have built partnerships with institutions that are destinations for families and individuals in our community. We bring math programming to their regular exhibits as well as special events and we have funded and built permanent installations as well. We are excited to connect with the maker community and educators from all disciplines. We offer internships to math and science preservice teachers through a collaboration with the UTeach internship program that extends to partnerships with UTeach Maker. We also collaborate with teachers and schools for field trips and events from the Round Rock ISD, Pflugerville ISD and the Austin ISD. We are a fully funded non profit and intend to share our ideas, making files and learning experiences with everyone who would like to join us in celebrating math.
