Sonia Kovalevsky was the first major Russian female mathematician, the first woman appointed to a full professorship in Northern Europe, and one of the first women to work as an editor for a scientific journal. University of Wisconsin Eau Claire Mathematics Department is proud to host Sonia Kovalevksy High School Mathematics Day each year in her honor.

This project aims to expose middle school and high school women and non-binary students to opportunities available in Math and Science by creating fun and exciting experiences through workshops, plenary talks, panel discussions, and a math competition. The teachers and sponsors are invited to attend our day of activities and participate in teacher workshops. We aim to create a network between the  women and non-binary students and teacher/sponsor participants, the UW-Eau Claire Mathematics department, and our guest speakers. We hope to ignite a passion for Math and Science within our participants and to develop lasting relationships that will aid students in their transitions from high school to college.
