CLFOGE Monthly Meeting NOTE: The date & location change @ Panera Bread
Mar 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
CLFOGE Hosts Math Circles – ** Date Change **
Apr 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Math Circles is a fun math challenge.  Older and younger kids will work together to solve a math challenge.  The event is assisted by a local math expert who will nudge the students in the right direction if they get stuck.

This is a great way for younger kids to work as a team to solve a challenge and for older kids to stretch their math knowledge in solving a math challenge.  More details will be made available as the date gets closer.  

Parents are welcome to come and watch, but we ask that they refrain from helping the kids.

The Math Circles is scheduled to coincide with the Summer Enrichment Fair so students can come and have a great time while their parents explore all the options available to their kids for the summer.
