Girls Summer Math Camp a fun new way to spend the summer

August 14, 2018 — 
When you’re a teenage girl thinking of a fun way to spend your summer vacation, doing math problems usually isn’t at the top of your list. University of Manitoba Professor Susan Cooper is on a mission to change that. Cooper and the Department of Mathematics offered a math camp this past July 19th for Grade 7 & 8 girls who have an interest in and aptitude for the subject. Called M.A.G.I.C. (Math And Girls In Contact), the camp was free to applicants, who were placed in small groups to work on a project about containing infectious diseases and investigating vaccination and quarantine rates. Emphasis was put on real-life problem-solving skills, as well the chance to enjoy mathematical games and guest presentations. The focus was not only on math, but on opportunities for the young women to meet and work with other girls who enjoy the subject.
