Three Ways to Host a Math Night

1. Win a National PTA STEM + Families Math Grant
As announced at the National PTA Convention in Las Vegas, PTA and Mathnasium are empowering families to support student success and fill a critical gap in STEM education in a unique way. The 2017 National PTA STEM + Families Math Grants, sponsored by Mathnasium, will award $1,000 each to local PTAs who commit to hosting one STEM + Families Math event using the official National PTA STEM + Families Toolkit between October 1, 2017, and December 15, 2017. This particular grant-funded elementary school program is appropriate for students in grades K-6. Grant applications are due by August 31, 2017.

 
2. Team up with your local Mathnasium Center

Mathnasium is dedicated to bringing Math Nights to schools nationwide. Even if you are not awarded one of the national grants, your local Mathnasium is happy to team up with you to put on a Math Night at your school! Find and contact your local Mathnasium.
