ONLINE: 2020 CIE/USA-DFW MathComp/MathFun

2019 MathComp/MathFun

2020 MathComp Winner, Test Results, Questions, and News Release

Speaker Presentations

The annual MathComp/MathFun event and parenting seminar are the flagship events of the CIE/USA-DFW Chapter’s youth program. It has served our community for 30 years. Each year, the event attracts nearly 1,000 participants including students, parents, educators, and volunteers. This fair consists of three programs: (1) a math competition, (2) a math fun fair, and (3) a parenting seminar. The goal is to stimulate young students’ interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

This year we will bring the event online to continue to provide educational value and fun for young kids and families. The event will be held on May 30, 2020 and it is FREE. We are extremely happy to have DFWCIA as a co-organizer this year.
