Participants Say…

Volunteers were very nice and understanding

What I liked most about the day was the sessions and the time we had during the breaks because we got to communicate with other girls from different schools. The volunteers were very nice and understanding.

Reshaped my image of stereotypes in math

I really liked my first session with the Math Guru, Vanessa Vakaria. She was really fun, and positive role model; but most of all, she was relatable. She made me really feel confident about my ability with math and reshaped my image of stereotypes in math.

It was surprising to learn how math is integrated into our everyday lives

It was surprising to learn how math is integrated into our everyday lives, ways that don’t seem obvious (game theory). Also how animals/nature uses the tactics in game theory. I also liked the food, decorating the puzzle piece and meeting new people, lunch, egg drop challenge.

Think outside the box

I liked that for the Design Challenge, we had our own unique ways to protect and score with the egg. It shows us how differently each of us think. I also thought it was fun that we had a limited supply of things so we had to think outside the box. I liked the design part [Be Creative: Why You’ll Love Designing Apps] because she told us the process of how she made her APP. To me that was amazing because in the future I aspire to be an entrepreneur/CEO of my own brand/lab etc.
