Wondering if you should host an event? More details are below; there are some major benefits to the hosting school, too.
We still have some dates available for this winter and spring. If you host an event, you can pick your own date. While we typically have events on Thursday or Friday evenings (5:30-8:00pm), we’re flexible. If you find yourself with more students than available spots (120), we can do events on consecutive days, such as a Friday evening and a Saturday afternoon. Note: dates for hosting schools are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Your Commitment - What You're Signing Up For
By hosting an event, your students get to see your school at night or on a weekend - something that they seem to really enjoy! Here's what we need from a hosting school:
Secure the space at the school (which PTAs can usually book for free), and
Find a local person affiliated with the PTA or the school to act as a chair or liaison and who can help gather teams and distribute flyers and posters.
Cost. The cost of event materials and staff are covered by per-team ticket prices, so the PTA and school do not need to contribute any funding. In other words, there is NO COST to the school or PTA for hosting a Math Adventure event.
Space Needed. This year, we’ll need a cafeteria, gym, library, and four classrooms, ideally two sets of neighboring classrooms. Or, you can relocate to a larger school, such as a middle school or high school. The choice is yours, so let us know which space you reserve.
Logistics. We’ll take care of registration, and collection of the per-team fee of $100 on our website, and will build a dedicated page for your school. We will also provide custom graphic design materials such as flyers and training materials.
Volunteers at the Event. Each team must provide one “coach” (chaperone) who stays with the team and one volunteer who will be part of the adventures. Or, your PTA can coordinate the same number of volunteers for the event and remove the per-team requirement.
Thanks for supporting Math Adventure!
