Community Outreach

  • UTA AWM Sonia Kovalevsky Day for 6-8th grade girls
  • The University of Texas at Arlington was proud to host its first ever Sonia Kovalevsky Mathematics Day for 6th-8th grade girls on Saturday, April 21, 2012. The event was organized by Dr. Julianne Chung, Dr. Theresa Jorgensen, and Mrs. Julie Sutton. We received a generous grant from the Association for Women in Mathematics.

  • AWM Sonia Kovalevsky High School Mathematics Day at Emory
  • I helped to organize a math enrichment day for Atlanta area high school women and teachers. We prepared and received a grant from the Association for Women in Mathematics. I recruited local high schools for participating students, convinced local businesses to support the event with donations and discounts, and conducted a student workshop on Image Processing and Graphics.Click here to see our chapter's website.

  • Miami Dade College Tools for Success (TFS) Program
  • I served on a career panel at Miami Dade College for students in the Tools for Success program. TFS is an NSF funded program aimed at increasing the number of under-represented students (minorities and women) completing undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
