Help wanted: Math On-A-Stick

We are almost ready for Year 2 of Math On-A-Stick at the Minnesota State Fair. Last year’s favorites are back. We have a few delightful new exhibits.

And we need help.

The fair is a bit more than a week away, and we have several shifts that still require volunteers.

If you are in a position to help, please do. Here’s how:

  • Sign up for a shift.
  • Sign up for a second (third? fourth?) shift.
  • Bring a friend.
  • Recruit, recruit, recruit.
  • Share on Facebook.
  • Email your colleagues (and neighbors and students and….?)
  • Forward this post to everyone you know!
  • Tell your spouse he/she is gonna need to rally for the cause.

Here are dates and times we especially need help:

Sunday, Aug. 28 5:00—8:15 p.m.

Monday, Aug. 29 2:15—5:15 p.m. and 5—8:15 p.m.
