Looking for Volunteer Session Leader for Math Festival. Math, physics, computer, or data science.
Firecracker Math is looking for volunteers interested in participating in a Zoom live-online Math Festival as session leaders, working with school-age kids Grades K-11 on math challenges, and guiding them through the solutions.
Important:Session leaders can be math teachers, college students, and adults whose background/major is in math, physics, computer, or data science.
The event will take place on November 8 from 1 to 4 pm.
Volunteers will have to spend a few hours of preparation with the math festival director and other volunteers. We will offer training online. As part of the festival prep, we will be giving some relevant Zoom training.
You will be leading a specific math activity or challenge in your "own" breakout Zoom session. There will be several cycles of the same activity. Each cycle takes approximately 25 min (20 min for the activity and a 5 min break during which new participants arrive in your breakout virtual room). The activities are designed to be easy to start, but most of them get rather deep. The activities will be assigned to each session leader at least one week before the festival date.
For College Students:
Your participation will be counted hourly towards an official internship with Firecracker Math. Use this opportunity to get a great experience and to boost your resume!
Please send us your resume and if you have a LinkedIn profile, send us the link. Experience working with children is a plus. Experience in teaching classes in Zoom or other virtual platforms is also a plus. We are looking for 10 to 20 volunteers.

No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

We introduce and explore math concepts and elements from number theory, pre-algebra and algebra, geometry, combinatorics, game theory and computer algorithms.
Students develop a love for math as they acquire reasoning skills and the ability to think logically, and build a solid foundation and an understanding of mathematics. At our math classes, we aim to show children that math can be incredibly creative, exciting, and fun.
