After School Program: Girls Rock Math is an arts-based math program just for girls. Our mission is to provide thought-provoking, creative experiences in math, empowering girls to develop confidence in their skills and a life-long interest in mathematics. Our programs offer activities, lessons and games that capture a girls interest and imagination, and use that as a catalyst for math growth, through arts, games and hands-on math projects. In our Girls Rock Math after school programs, girls will learn about the exciting and beautiful side of math, from the mysteries of the Fibonacci Sequence to the gorgeous complexity of fractals! Each 8 week series explores a variety of ideas and topics including infinity big and small, the super cool number Pi, and creating some terrific tessellations. Math has never been so artsy!

Born and raised in Tacoma, WA, Emma has also been lucky enough to call SW Utah and SE Asia home. She’s lived in Seattle since 2013 and absolutely loves it! When not perusing the public library, Emma can be found biking around the city, playing with animals, or exploring the wonders of the PNW. Emma studied Natural Science with an emphasis in Biology at the University of Puget Sound with the intention of one day becoming a teacher. Between her love for education and experience working with kids at the YMCA, Emma is beyond ecstatic to be with Girls Rock Math!
Brittany is a Colorado transplant that fell in love with the mountains and people of the PNW during college at Western Washington University where she received a BA in Community and Outdoor Recreation as well as Spanish. Brittany is deeply passionate about the outdoors, and when not hard at work helping youth develop their potential, she can be found rock climbing wherever the weather permits across the state or in the gym. She also loves exploring different types of art in her free time when it's too rainy to go climbing, including drawing, painting, videography, and others. Inspiring others to find their own passions is her mission, and she is always excited to find new ways to motivate and lead both youth and peers alike!
