The goal of Girls Talk Math is to encourage students who identify as female to consider careers in Mathematics. This is accomplished through a two week summer day-camp in which girls work in groups to solve difficult problem sets and learn the achievements of women in mathematics. The program is based in a framework of understanding the barriers preventing young women from entering careers in mathematics. These include a lack of confidence in their abilities, failure to see themselves represented among mathematicians, and less encouragement from peers and teachers. The Girls Talk Math (GTM) camp will address these issues by exposing participants to the rich history of women doing mathematics and connecting them to current mathematicians, graduate students, and undergraduates studying mathematics in the area. As students learn about the history of women in mathematics, they will explore some of the ideas studied by these mathematicians and their applications in modern math and science through activities devised by the project directors and staff.
