Student presenting her project results, involving math and coding, at Girls Exploring Math 2019 summer camp.

This is a series of monthly workshops that invite young women studying grades 8 to 12 to experience mathematics through engaging activities in a nontraditional environment. These workshops welcome former BtC-GEM camp attendees, so that they can keep on exploring math, as well as newcomers interested in preparing to attend next year's camp. Read more about the program here.

Bring your own lunch. Please RSVP.

Buckyballs, planar graphs and coloring

In the first part of the workshop, we will learn about a particular type of polyhedra called buckyballs and explore the problem of coloring their edges to create symmetrical patterns through the study of planar graphs.

In the second part, we will do origami! We will learn how to fold units that can be assembled into pentagonal and hexagonal faces, to then create a buckyball. We will apply what we learned from the planar graphs of these polyhedra to assemble the units according to their colors and create a symmetrical pattern.
