Last year, 500 girls participated in the GIG and the goal this year is to bring this great opportunity to 500-600 girls!
Snacks, an all-you-can-eat lunch in the college dining hall, t-shirt and backpack are all included with the registration fee! Questions? Contact TBreen@gscwm.org.
MiM materials consist of a large bank of activities, games, and projects for ages 2-12, based on over 15 years of research and development supported in part by The National Science Foundation. MiM has been piloted all over the US, in settings ranging from homes to museums to preschools. Research demonstrates that children and adults using MiM build math skills and confidence, promote understanding of math in everyday life, and promote positive math attitudes. MiM is designed to be accessible to everyone, including those with little mathematical comfort or confidence.
A portion of each sale will be donated to AB PIP STEM!

Every year at Market Math, we hold an estimation contest. This year, the number of cheese puffs in our contest was 80. Amazingly, we had three winners who estimated the puffs EXACTLY! Congratulations to Lexi, Margo, and Szymon! Each of you will receive a Galileoscope. We'll contact you to deliver your prizes.
Many thanks to our Guests, Exhibitors, Sponsors and Volunteers at our DiscoverSTEM event on Monday evening November 2 at ABRHS.
