Seeking student volunteers for the National Math Festival in Washington, D.C.

Instructor Bjoern Muetzel is looking for volunteers to join him at the National Math Festival in Washington, D.C. on Saturday May 4 and present geometric games and activities to children and visitors. The festival hopes to “inspire and challenge all ages to see math in new and unexpected ways.” You may use your Byrne funds to cover travel expenses and the hotel, and there will be time to explore the festival.

Congratulations to Shikhin Sethi ’19, the recipient of the 2019 John J. Byrne Jr. Prize in Mathematics!

This prize is awarded to the top Dartmouth graduating mathematics major interested in continuing mathematics at the graduate level. The award will cover Shikhin’s tuition for the first year of graduate school at Princeton University.
