Nueva Math Circle is a joyful math enrichment event where guest mathematicians and math educators lead students from PreK-12th grade in intriguing math activities or investigations. Students also have the option to explore games and activities hosted in the I-Lab. 

After a tremendous inaugural event at the Bay Meadows campus in February (featuring Machine Learning), we return to the Hillsborough campus on a beautiful Friday evening in April for our third & final event of the school year.

From our Most Recent Event

To round out a fun-filled evening, pizza and snacks will be available for purchase. Back by popular demand, special dinner selections including Chinese meal boxes are also available for pre-order online during the ticket checkout process (a limited quantity of these special items may also be available for purchase at the event).

This is a community-wide event that is open to the public.

Please be advised that this is not a drop-off event for Lower School students. Parents are invited to join their child(ren) in the LS sessions.
