April 2022 is national “Math Awareness Month.” To celebrate and engage our students and community around real-life Math Applications, the Thurston County Chamber Education Committee is promoting our 11th Annual “Math for Life” event for students in Griffin, Olympia, North Thurston, and Tumwater school districts. Last year we had over 1,000 students participate in this event!

This event will take place from April 3rd to April 16, 2022

Why Businesses Participate

“I’ve been doing Math for Life from the beginning because:

  • It’s great fun!
  • It really helps the kids understand that ‘Math is a life skill – not just an academic subject.”
  • It’s GREAT for business: Many parents ‘discover’ Cabinets by Trivonna. They come back when they need a new Kitchen”

Ross Irwin, Cabinets by Trivonna.
