*Rescheduled from January 23 to February 13 due to snow.*

SWE-RVA will be assisting with Sonya Kovalevsky Day, hosted by the VCU chapter of the Association of Women in Math. Sonya Kovalevsky (born Sofia Kovalevskaya) was a Russian mathematician who faced obstacles in her education but went on to make important contributions to mathematics.

Sonya Kovalevsky Day is an outreach event to encourage middle school girls to study math. VCU's chapter of AWM is organizing SK Day at the Math-Science Innovation Center. There will be a keynote speaker and hands-on workshops. SWE-RVA will be leading a workshop on electric circuits for students to explore the mathematical relationship between resistance and the blink rate of an LED. We can use volunteers for our workshop.
