The first GirlsGetMath@CSU is scheduled for July 11 – 15, 2022.

GirlsGetMath@CSU is a five-day non-residential mathematics program that is open to high schoolers, regardless of gender. Our program is modeled after GirlsGetMath@ICERM at Brown University’s Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics.

  • GirlsGetMath occurs in an encouraging and inclusive environment that builds students’ confidence in mathematics and other STEM-related fields
  • GirlsGetMath expands participants’ understanding and knowledge of mathematics through computations and experimentations.
  • GirlsGetMath provides expert mathematical training and mentoring.
  • GirlsGetMath encourages high schoolers to explore topics such as cryptography, the mathematics of voting, image processing, prime numbers and factoring, and fractals.

The goals of the program are:

  • to show young adults that the study of mathematics can be exciting, beautiful, and useful
  • to build confidence in students’ mathematical knowledge through engaging and expert mathematical instruction
  • to provide an affirming environment that introduces high schoolers to a variety of career opportunities in which sophisticated mathematical ability plays a key role
  • to emphasize the strategic role mathematics plays for success in STEM careers
  • to provide the participants with a support group and expert mentors who are successful undergraduate, graduate students, postdocs, and professionals from the STEM workforce
  • to have a positive influence on the way students view their mathematical interest and ability
