The WPI Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) will host a Sonia Kovalevsky Day (SK Day) outreach event for local 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls virtually on Saturday, April 9, 2022. SK Days at WPI aim to bolster our participants’ passion and enthusiasm for mathematics in a supportive environment, while meeting girls in the New England area who share similar interests and, of course, having fun!
We were very excited to have SK Day 2022 back in-person for the first time since 2019!
Background on SK Day
Named in honor of Sonia Kovalevsky, the first woman to obtain her Ph.D. in mathematics, SK Days are nationally-held, locally-organized outreach events with the aim of supporting and encouraging young women to continue their study of mathematics; for more info from the AWM, please see https://awm-math.org/programs/math-outreach/ .
