Neighborhood Mathematica Spring 2011

Neighborhood Mathematica is taking off again--this time with more volunteers, sponsorship, and more centers and students.

I am happy to announce that the competition has received a grant from DoSomething.org, a national nonprofit headquaretered in NYC that supports community service projects implemented by youth. Neighborood Mathematica has received the prestigious Seed Grant, which will go far in garnering the much needed recognition and support from the business and nonprofit communities.

Another one of Neighborhood Mathematica's sponsors is Mercedes Benz of Atlanta, which is formerly known as Baranco Automotive. A special tanks is due to this organization for their monetary and moral support of this amazing project.

Progress update: Volunteer math coaches are to be deployed to the recreation centers the week of 3/21 and will work with students in grades 2-8
