Outreach Opportunity

A message on behalf of the department:

Good Day,
We are seeking a few volunteers to help with an event on June 10th from 3:30 – 9:00. The event is a panel discussion with Dr. Manjul Bhargava and it takes place at Hart House here on campus.

We are essentially looking for people to help with set up and take down of the event (including moving some banners and signs), helping with the registration desk, etc.

You don’t need to stay for the entire event (although we will need a few people to stay until 9:00) and you are invited to listen to the discussion as well (it is quite an impressive panel of speakers from academia, industry and government and will focus on mathematics). Refreshments are also available.

If you are interested and available please let Pamela Brittain (outreach@math.toronto.edu) know and they she will put you in touch with the head organizers.
