Resource:  Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival
July 29th Nancy Blachman, Founder and Dr. Hector Rosario, Director of Festivals talked with us about the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival Organization, the festival events and the online, webinar and paper resources you can use to enhance your mathematics programming.  Hosting a festival is a great way to bring your mathematics community (University, Math Teacher Circle, Math club) together with the families in your visitor community.  Notes from the chat are here, and you can view a brief video about their philosophy that helps explain how JRMF is different from other resources for mathematics.  Funding is available!
