News from the National Math Festival

March 2021 ·

Join us in one month for the 2021 NMF Live Online Weekend starting Friday, April 16 through Sunday, April 18, 2021! The NMF is a youth-centered environment, with moderated chat, live support staff at the online help desk during Festival hours, and dedicated activities for every age group: 2-4, 5-7, 8-10, 11-13, 14-18, 18+, and All Ages.

This is family math inspiration at its best. Drop in and out throughout the weekend. Stay a few minutes, or a few hours. Take it easy, or dive deeply: Both approaches will be fun during this exciting community-building weekend.

You can also check out the event schedule in advance, or simply join us April 16-18 and see what's live!
