Math 4 Change is a summer conference where rising 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade girls come together to collaborate as advocates using leadership, design thinking, and of course their STEM skills to become leaders of social change. Girls will learn how to use creative problem solving to brainstorm ways to make a positive impact by helping others. After the conference, girls will understand how they can use science, technology, engineering, or math skills to serve as a leader for causes they care about most.
6 Reasons why every middle school age girl should attend the conference
By attending the summer conference, each girl will have the opportunity to...

- Connect and collaborate as leaders and change-makers in their community and school
- Expand her critical thinking and problem-solving skills
- Boost her academic confidence by interacting with supportive peers

Frequently Asked Questions
+ Can I bring other children that are not rising 6th-8th grade girls?
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate additional children at the summit. Our space is limited to registered guests. Everyone entering the summit 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 summit?
Of course! Please provide your best contact information when you register. We will share the final event 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. Due to funding, we are unable to provide lunch for parents and unregistered participants.
+ What should each girl bring to the conference?
We will provide all of the supplies necessary to engage in the conference. If girls must bring a smart device or phone, we ask that all cell phones are turned off during the conference 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 conference together?
When registering for the conference, 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.
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 conference. While we do our best to accept as many qualified girls as possible, the number of scholarships available is impacted by funding. Scholarships are available to families that qualify for free or reduced lunch as specified by Child Nutrition Services-Public Schools of North Carolina.
