Julia Robinson Math Festival

Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals inspire students to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through activities that encourage collaborative, creative problem-solving.


A comfortable familiarity with mathematical concepts enriches an individual's experiences in the world just as the ability to read opens the mind to unlimited possibilities.


JRMF's vision is to inspire a life-long curiosity for mathematics by instilling a genuine interest in creative problem-solving from an early age. The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals allow young people to develop their talent for mathematics by providing problems, puzzles, and activities that are intriguing and accessible. Our focus is on creating a collaborative, non-competitive atmosphere to explore the joys and power of mathematics. JRMF aspires to reach a diverse audience with the goal of broadening society's appreciation and support of mathematics.


We believe that developing students' interest in mathematics and enjoyment of problem solving will broaden their outlook and enhance their contributions to society, whatever their chosen career path.

The Festival introduces kids to the beauty of mathematics by providing interesting, inspiring, engaging, thought-provoking problems.


5th - 8th graders are invited to experience the beauty of mathematics through hands-on, collaborative activities designed to hone problem-solving skills and have fun!
