Elizabeth Lay, Claire Steffen and I had the opportunity to present a webinar through the Texas Historical Commission today.
We discussed ways that museums can enhance visitor experiences with math, showed a variety of examples of math activities at museum locations and talked about our process in developing connected activities.
We are really excited by the response and plan to host some happy hour zoom chats. If you would like to zoom chat please let us know!

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!
