SUMiT 2013

SUMiT 2013!

Girls' Angle and MIT's Undergraduate Society of Women in Mathematics (USWIM) collaborated to bring the second SUMiT event on January 26, 2013!
Last year, SUMiT 2012 took place on January 21, 2012 with a great (10 out of 10!) overall rating from participants.
This year 32 girls in 6-10th grade came together from as far as Virginia and California to participate in a themed hunt.
I agree with Christie, who blogged about last year's event, that this event is different from the AMC/AIME/other math competition I participated in during High School.
SUMiT is different from every other math extracurricular event in the United States in that it brings together young women of various different math backgrounds for a collaborative rather than competitive event. 
As a volunteer, I had a lot of fun solving math problems with bright young women :)
