We Need Volunteers!

How can volunteers help?

Volunteers manage a station with a certain math related activity. These activities vary from problems and ciphers to building 3D shapes, origami, strategy and board games, experiments, and so on. Most volunteers, who help with the stations, are there from ~9:30 until ~1:30, but shorter shifts are also possible.

Volunteers won’t need to be involved in organizing the stations; they receive instructions on what should be done. In most cases, the volunteers need to become familiar with their stations ahead of time (for example, learn the games or practice the hands-on activities). Usually, it doesn’t take much time to get ready.
