Imagine a community center gym filled with squeals of delight, high-fives and gleeful jigs when a challenge is met.  Imagine now that coming from families playing math games!  Seattle MathFest is our annual math bash celebrating Explorations in Math’s partner schools and our work to improve attitudes about math. Seattle  MathFestwill only be successful if people like YOU to join us as a volunteer. MathFest is a great opportunity for employee or community groups to give back to the community—and help us develop the workforce of the future at the same time! Help is needed to set up  (starts at 2 p.m.) and take down game booths (8-9 p.m), to play games with the elementary students attending (training starts at 4 p.m.; game play is 5-8 p.m.), and to assist with registering attendees. Volunteers will receive a t-shirt and light refreshments.
