Register interest to be an Activity Leader
Thank you for your interest in becoming an Activity Leader for the very first Meet Pi Maths Festival. Here is an outline of what’s required and other questions you may have.
What is the role of a Meet Pi Activity Leader?
This festival is an event where kids can explore, discover and play with mathematics. Each activity table will have a facilitator and a problem set, game, puzzle, or activity. Activity Leaders guide participants to approach, explore or solve problems and strive to ask questions rather than provide suggestions or answers.
Who can be an Activity Leader?
Maths teachers, any adult with a passion and interest in maths, tertiary students or senior high school students (Year 11 or Year 12) with a passion and aptitude for maths and seeking a community volunteer and leadership opportunity. All activity leaders aged 18+ must have VIT registration OR hold a current Working With Children Check.
How will you benefit from being an Activity Leader?
Meet other like-minded people. Inspire a love of learning maths in children within our community. Experience the joy of helping our youth build their creativity and confidence in problem-solving.
How many Activity Leaders can each school have?
We are aiming to have at least one Activity Leader from each local school and we are absolutely open to having more depending on the final number of activity tables we end up having at the event.
What sort of time commitment is expected?
You will be assigned 1-2 table activities to review in the weeks prior to the event. With a brief training session just before the event starts, setting up and packing down your activity on the day and attending the event, you’ll need to volunteer approximately 5 hours.
Will I get paid to be an Activity Leader?
The Meet Pi Maths Festival is entirely volunteer based, so we’d love to hear from people who are passionate about maths, guiding students to achieve and helping in the community.
How do I nominate myself?
