The Utpal Shanghvi Global School in Mumbai, India hosted a Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival on Sat., Sept. 18 — the first of its kind in Maharashtra.

There were 210 participants in grades 4-6 connecting virtually and delighting in the discovery of math. A high school student led the charge, training 34 volunteers in 9th grade to run the festival.

Lively and interactive session. Games were quirky and engaging. Great combination of education and fun. - Parent
