Highlights of the program include:
- Active learning workshops, team-building projects, and creative problem solving activities for high school students and teachers.
- A discussion of successful initiatives for broadening participation in mathematics.
- Networking opportunities with mathematics professionals representing a diverse set of mathematics-related careers.
