ITHACA, N.Y. – Girls' Adventures in Math (GAIM), a team-based math competition for girls in grades 3-8, will be held at Cornell University on Sunday, April 29 from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Participants will be required to engage in “creative, strategic, out-of-the-box problem-solving” in order to win. For the event’s final hour, students and coaches will gather in the Groos Family Atrium in Klarman Hall to play curated strategy games. A farewell and awards presentation will follow.

Twenty-two teams will compete in the upper elementary division (grades three through five) and 13 in the middle school division (grades six through eight).
