Registration is now open for the 15th-anniversary celebration of the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival.

The celebration includes a community-wide math festival and an after-party.

The math festival will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022 at the Mayfair Community Center, and is free and open to the public. A closed-invitation after party will occur after the math festival for JRMF donors, volunteers and staff.

“It’s been 15 years since JRMF hosted its first math festival at Google’s headquarters, and we have been helping kids discover joyful math ever since,” says Daniel Kline, JRMF executive director. “What better way to celebrate this incredible milestone than introducing hundreds of children in San Jose to the magical math moments we provide.”

What to Expect:

A math festival consists of a dozen or more math games throughout an ample space. Students and their families can choose which activities they want to play, and a trained volunteer will help guide their learning and answer any questions. All math levels and ages are welcome.

Lunch will be provided, and there will be take-home math puzzles and giveaways for all attendees.

Registration is required to attend.


About the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival:

Since its inception in 2007, the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival has brought math festivals to over 50,000 students in 31 states, 20 countries and six continents. More than 500 festivals have been hosted worldwide — primarily by math-loving parents, teachers and volunteers in the communities they serve.

“When I started JRMF, I noticed a large gap in math education for kids,” says founder Nancy Blachman. “Math festivals are non-competitive celebrations of mathematics, its great ideas, and its intriguing problems. JRMF inspires K–12 students to think critically and explore mathematics’s richness and beauty through collaborative, creative problem-solving.”
