The Math Catcher Outreach Program is a science outreach initiative at Simon Fraser University run by SFU faculty and staff members and students who volunteer their time towards the program.
Math Catcher aims to tackle the stigma surrounding mathematics among Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth through a series of initiatives. These include school visits, workshops, academic summer camps, tutoring programs, and classroom resources.
The main goal of the Program is to encourage students to discover the joy and appeal of mathematics at a critical age. Our hope is that they may better understand the presence and importance of mathematics in everyday life and consider it as a field of study and future career.
