STEMers – Join us for the Jay Gillen Talk
You are invited to lunch with our guest speaker, Jay Gillen, on Thurs, Nov 7, 2019 at 1PM at Condado, 1227 N. High Street, Columbus, OH 43201.
The Algebra Project revolutionized equity in STEM by declaring Mathematics as a Civil Right, organizing against a system that removed Black and Brown children from a civic engagement by denying them access to algebra. While the fight over algebra has been won, new mechanisms that use mathematics and quantitative literacy still depower students of color. In this talk, Baltimore mathematics teacher and community organizer Jay Gillen describes the power of youth-centered enterprises to develop community-based art, science, and mathematics experiences that increase financial literacy, civic engagement, and youth political power.
