Description  

Serving as President 2019  present 

Gave Mathematical presentations for local school children during both Maths and Science weeks (2018, 2019). Topics included: "Geometry of Soap Films" and "The Neighbouring Domain Problem". 

Helped organise an exhibition on the connections between Mathematics and Music for Kansas public radio station KMUW in Spring 2014. 

Between 2012 and 2017, regularly lectured in Mathematics to primary and secondary level students on elementary topics in geometry, topology and number theory. 

Worked as a volunteer tutor helping adult learners complete their GED in Mathematics and Science. 

Gave lectures to Team Maths students on: ``Geometry and the Shape of the Universe" (2018) and ``Soap Films and Minimal Surfaces" (2019)
