Math Adventure was started by a geeky dad with a crazy idea - what if math could be fun?
That smart, audacious guy, David Garber (here on the left), had experienced the nerdy excitement of puzzle culture at Microsoft for years, and wanted to develop something that could bring the thrill of team-based puzzle-solving to kids, while also immersing them in a theatrical experience. And so Math Adventure was born in 2007 at Somerset Elementary School in Bellevue, Washington.
Our staff is a unique mix, just like our events: we're math nerds, theater geeks, software engineers and programmers, web junkies, and educators. We love solving and crafting puzzles. But we all have one thing in common: we're passionate about changing the emotional connection that kids and parents have to math. We've seen what this event can do for the kids who attend. We're in.
If you'd like to join our ragtag team of high-energy, passionate, fun volunteers, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always looking for more people to join in on the fun.
