Poster Sessions

Please note: all sessions are listed in Mountain Daylight Time (MDT = UTC-6:00)

An MAA poster session allows for many people with interest in a specific topic to share their work. Posters will be available for viewing throughout MAA MathFest with live presentations at designated times.

MAA Outreach Poster Session

Thursday, August 5, 11:00 a.m. - 11:50 a.m.


The MAA Outreach Poster Session will provide the opportunity for program directors to share the amazing work they have done with students from elementary school through higher education. We welcome posters from all kinds of projects: math teacher circles, math summer camps, mentoring programs, research experiences and more! This session serves as a way to not only highlight the great work of community members working on outreach projects but to also offer ideas to others who struggle with engaging their students. Have an idea for a math program? Come learn from experienced outreach program directors! Also learn about funding opportunities through MAA grants programs.
