Dartmouth is hosting two events in May for area middle and high school students interested in math and science.

Science Day 2019 and the Sonia Kovalevsky Math Day provide opportunities for future scientists and mathematicians to connect with graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

Science Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center.

The seventh-annual Science Day is a drop-in laboratory open house, hosted by graduate students in STEM fields. Local middle and high school students are invited to visit labs across campus and explore a variety of activity stations on topics from reading fossils to 3D printing and more. It’s an opportunity to hear from real scientists about what goes into research and why they love what they do.

All participants should be accompanied by an adult, and should sign in at the welcome table in the lobby of the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center. Parking is available at the Dewey Field Lot. Registration is available online.

Science Day 2019 is sponsored by the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies.

Sonia Kovalevsky Math Day

9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, May 11,  at Kemeny Hall

The Sonia Kovalevsky Math Day—named for the 19th-century Russian mathematician who was the first woman to earn a doctorate in mathematics—is a day of hands-on mathematics workshops and games for girls in middle and high school and their teachers. The events is designed and led by Dartmouth graduate and undergraduate students. During the day, students will learn about polyhedrons, codebreaking, and other fun and challenging problems.

The event includes breakfast and a buffet lunch. To preregister, visit the program website.

The Sonia Kovalevsky Math Day is sponsored by the Department of Mathematics and the Dean of Faculty for the Sciences.
