Our future scientists, inventors, and developers need to love mathematics; it's everywhere! Like it or not, mathematics can be challenging. But we at MEGL know that mathematics is beautiful, fun, and enthralling. We want to share the positive side of mathematics with you! We have activities for elementary school, middle school, and high school students, and we are filling our calendar now (all are completely free).

Contact Outreach Director Jack Love (jlove6@masonlive.gmu.edu) to set a date.
