Our JRMF takes place on a Friday in the morning, followed by tours that demonstrate math applications and ending with lunch and group activities. Math teachers are invited to register and bring their students. We hold the festival at Santa Fe Community College and it is open to all Northern NM schools. The festival is followed by tours on-campus of different labs including algae biofuel lab, solar energy lab, Science on Sphere and Medical Simulation Lab.
2019 STEM Santa Fe Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival
March 15 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm MDT
A Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival offers students advanced and thought-provoking mathematics in a social and cooperative atmosphere. Students choose among several tables offering problem sets, games, or puzzles with mathematical themes. They work as long as they wish, while a facilitator provides support and encouragement. Motivation comes from the social interaction, rather than from any prize, grade, medal, or ranking. Festivals are run locally and supported by a national network. They can address any level of student, from those struggling with mathematics to those soaring in achievement.
