Girls Talk Math
In 2016 Francesca Bernardi and I created the summer camp Girls Talk Math for rising 9th-12th graders in the Triangle area of North Carolina. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has hosted up to 40 campers every summer.
Math Problem Sets
Campers work in groups to learn about an area of mathematics usually not encountered until undergraduate courses or even graduate school. The learning is student directed through problem sets designed in an inquiry based learning framework
Each group is assigned a woman scientist. They research her life and work, and possibly interview her, then write and record a podcast about their scientist. Campers' podcasts are available on Soundcloud and iTunes.
