We are happy to be partnering up with the Department of African American and African Studies to host math workshops at their Community Extension Center, located in the heart of Columbus Near East Side. Before the pandemic, we offered a series of workshops on math magic. Read below to find out more about what we are doing this year.

Hidden Figures Revealed

In April 2022, we will offer a series of four math workshops inspired by the work of the 7 Black mathematicians who have obtained a PhD from The Ohio State University. Attendees will learn more about their hidden stories and explore the mathematics they were interested on.

You’ll find inspiration in their determination to achieve their goals and have fun exploring their mathematical ideas through hands-on activities. There will be board games, paper dragons, knot puzzles, and more!

The event is free of cost and it is open to students in grades 6, 7, and 8. No registration required. Each session will focus on a different story. Sessions are not sequential, so interested patrons are welcome to attend any sessions they are able to.

This series of workshops is part of the Hidden Figures Revealed project, funded by OSU’s Seed Fund for Racial Justice. Learn more about the project here.
