Event description

Description

April is Financial Literacy & Math Awareness Month!

REGISTER A GIRL: MATH EXPLORATION WORKSHOP

Fly (Financial Literacy for Youth) Math Club will host a workshop to bring awareness to the importance of math and financial literacy for youth especially girls. Girls in grades 6th, 7th, and 8th will collaborate to solve an escape room challenge incorporating consumer math skills. During this game based challenge, girls will "escape the room" by utilizing their creative problem-solving skills to progress through a series of engaging puzzles designed to introduce them to personal finance topics such as budgeting and comparison shopping while integrating math skills.

Who: Girls in grades 6th-8th are eligible to attend the workshop. Registration is open on a first-come, first serve basis until we reach capacity.

When: Saturday, April 6, 2019, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Check-in starts at 9:00 a.m. and programming will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m.

Where: Hygge Charlotte West location (2128 Remount Rd, Charlotte, NC 28208)

Why: By attending the workshop, each girl will have the opportunity to...

  • Boost her academic confidence by fostering a growth mindset while improving math skills

  • Connect and collaborate with supportive peers in her community

  • Expand her critical thinking and problem-solving skills

  • Discover how to activate her unique strengths to think outside the box

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

+ Can I bring other children that are not 6th-8th-grade girls?
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate additional children at the summit. Our space is limited to registered guests. Everyone attending the workshop will need a ticket.

+ What is the attire?
We suggest girls wear casual, comfortable attire. Please dress appropriately based on the weather (ex: light jacket if necessary).

+ Will I receive a reminder about the workshop?
Of course! Please provide your best contact information when you register. We will share the final workshop schedule, sessions outcomes, and additional details about the event at least 48 hours in advance. For questions about your registration, visit www.flymathclub.com/contactus

+ Can parents attend the event?
We are unable to provide space for parents to stay during the workshop. However, parents may sit in the lobby area outside of the session room.

+ What should each girl bring to the workshop?
We will provide all of the supplies necessary to engage in the workshop. If girls must bring a smart device or phone, we ask that all cell phones are turned off during the workshop to minimize disruption. Fly Math Club is not responsible for the girl's personal belongings.

+ Can I register a group of girls to attend the workshop?
When registering for the workshop, please complete the friend request line on the form if the friend registered separately. If you would like to register a group of girls together, select an additional ticket for each girl in attendance.

+ Do you offer scholarships?
Fly Math Club's mission is to ensure every girl believes that she is able and capable of achieving success in math, regardless of whether or not her family can afford to pay the full membership fee. We have a limited number of scholarships available to supplement the cost of the workshop. While we do our best to accept as many qualified girls as possible, the number of scholarships available depends on the availability of funding. Apply for a scholarship here.
