The Math Booth at the Manoa Experience fair was quite a success. Professors Sarah (Post), Thomas (Hangelbroek), and Rufus (Willett) of the Math Majors Recruitment Committee organized the creation of a very nice poster and managed the impossible feat of entertaining elementary and intermediate school kids.
