The Pathways Resource Center plans, hosts, publicizes, and participates in multiple events throughout the calendar year in order to advance the goals of the Illinois Pathways Initiative. Upcoming events, along with supporting materials, can be found here.

This summer the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is offering STEM related talks, events, and webinars. For more details see below. 

GeoJam – family math event

GeoJam is a free community math event hosted by pre-service mathematics teachers from the College of Education. Interact with these university students as you and your kids complete life-size puzzles, reasoning challenges, number games, geometric coloring, and lots of other activities suitable for all ages. The event is on May 14 from 5:45-8 p.m. at Champaign Central High School. Enter on Park St.Adam Roman Poetzel . Curriculum & Instruction

Seeking children (9-11 years old) to use a brain-computer interface

Want to control a computer with your brain? Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) systems translates natural brain activity into computer commands. We are seeking children 9 to 11 years old to participate in a short BCI study. Your child will use the BCI to make selections in an age-appropriate computer application. Children will be rewarded with a small gift of their choice.Jessica L Mullins . Brain-Computer Interface Lab

Summer Illinois Math Camp

SIM Camp is a free, week-long math camp in the Department of Mathematics for local high school students, from Aug. 3-7. It will introduce students to proofs and applications of math in algebraic topology and number theory. Students will also compete in daily math challenges for prizes. On Friday, students will also see how math relates to chemistry. Applications due June 1.Claire Merriman . Mathematics

Middle school students needed for research on science education simulations

Middle school students (grades 6-8) are needed for a research study on gestures and computer simulations. Participants will discuss science concepts and interact with science simulations during a 1-hour interview. Each student will receive $10 in appreciation. For more information contact Polly Kroha ( or Robb Lindgren (robblind@illinois).
