Snacks and lunch provided!

MATHCOUNTS is a nationwide middle school math enrichment program. Each February, the Engineering Alliance Minnesota student chapter partners with local engineers to bring Minneapolis middle school students to campus for a local competition. These students will compete in several written and oral math rounds, hoping to advance to the state and national competitions. MATHCOUNTS needs student volunteers to ensure that this event runs smoothly.

A variety of volunteer shifts are available between 7:30 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. Most volunteer shifts are one hour and you can volunteer for as many as you'd like. Free snacks and a pizza lunch will be provided!

Volunteer sign up.

New this year, volunteers will have an opportunity to interact with human resource professionals from local engineering firms who will be in attendance helping, so make sure to bring copies of your resume!

For more information, email Katie Jamieson at katie@mathcountsmn.org or Julie Steel at jsteel@mnspe.org, or call 651-457-2347.
