Coming Up

SUMIT 2020
April 4 and 5, 2020
Location: MIT



It is with great disappointment that SUMIT 2020 has been cancelled to comply with MIT's COVID-19 policy.

Yesterday, MIT announced its official policy on COVID-19. In it, it states explicitly: "To protect children and older visitors to campus, we ask that you: Cancel or reschedule all K12 programs and visits to be held at MIT from now through May 15." This, unfortunately, leaves us no choice but to cancel SUMIT 2020.

We will refund all of the registration fees. If by Monday, March 9, 2020, you have not gotten a refund, please let us know.

We were so looking forward to witnessing participants rally together and overcome big challenges and rescue the world by solving math problems of all shapes and sizes, and we hope to have that opportunity at the next SUMIT, which we hope will be SUMIT 2021.

11th graders: Next year, you are all welcome to be involved on the staff side of next year's event.

If you can't stand not having this math collaboration experience, we can still try to do one at your school or a local library. We've run some 150 math collaborations at schools, libraries, and other venues. Contact your school officials or your local library to see if they'd be willing to have us over to run a math collaboration. (Thanks to a grant from Microsoft Research, the first such event we run at a school is free of charge.)

We apologize for any disappointment this cancellation causes, but hope you understand.

To all SUMIT 2020 registrants: Keep on thinking about math!.
