The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals seek to inspire students to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through activities that encourage collaborative, creative problem-solving. The students will get to experience intriguing puzzles, problems, and activities designed for students in 6th - 12th grades*. There will be mathematicians to work with the students on the activities in a collaborative, non-competitive atmosphere.

* Younger students - also allowed, but activities may be challenging.
