    The Department of Mathematics outreach and public engagement activities serve all members of the wider community interested in exploring the creative and discovery-driven nature of mathematical exploration and research. A primary audience for our outreach activities is elementary, middle and high school children, who we engage with through events such as the Summer Illinois Math (SIM) camp, Sonia Math Days (Saturday workshops), department Open Houses, and classroom visits. The department also engages with adult community members through public lectures and symposia.
