Sonia Math Day

Sonia Math Day is a free, day-long female-focused outreach event for 8th-12th graders each semester hosted by the University of Illinois Graduate Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). Our goal is to encourage students from traditionally underrepresented genders to consider pursuing higher education in math and science by connecting them to peers interested in math, providing them with role models in the department, and introducing them to exciting math content outside of their regular school curriculum. For Sonia Math Day, the students participate in engaging, hands-on math activities and are provided with lunch, t-shirts, and mathematical take-homes for each participant! Applicants of all genders are welcome to apply, and gender is not considered in admitting applicants.

We are working hard to plan engaging, illuminating, and above all safe Sonia Math Day events. We appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate COVID precautions and restrictions, and hope to have updated information available soon!

It is impossible to be a mathematician without being a poet in soul.
