This past summer was FULL of wonderful math things! I finished up my last two math grad classes (Yay!), went to TMC, and got to learn from Fawn Nguyen! And if all of that wasn’t enough, I got to end my summer with Math on a Stick!
You can also read a reflection from Laura’s daughter here. I so enjoyed meeting her and the conversations we had. Here she is running the spiral machine.
This was my second year volunteering, and it is always a great time, rain or shine! If its rainy, that usually means more time to reconnect with the other volunteers, but if the weather’s great, Math on a Stick fills up quickly!

Every day there is a visiting mathematician with some activity for people to do.
It’s so fun to see all the different things people create throughout the day.
Casey flew in from California for Math on a Stick! When we weren’t volunteering, we went to a few “must sees” at the State Fair.
I was so fortunate that I was able to see so many people from the MTBoS community that flew in for math on a stick as well as reconnect with many MN friends.
It is always so fun to meet Twitter friends in real life!
I’m already looking forward to next year! The last weekend of the fair is Labor Day weekend. Come visit!!
