SWiM 2021

SWiM 2021
June 15-23, 2021

Summer Workshop in Math (SWiM) is a free 7-day online workshop for rising high school seniors who are interested in mathematics, with a particular focus on advancing female participation in math. SWiM is particularly interested in increasing diversity in mathematics and in science and technology opportunities more broadly, so SWiM strongly encourages students to apply who are female or gender minorities. 

SWiM participants will attend two math courses, afternoon group work, lectures given by local professors at Duke, UNC, and NCSU, as well as panel discussions and social activities. Participants in the program will learn about exciting mathematics, discovering new arguments, and explaining insights to their peers.  The week concludes with a live broadcast of the participants’ presentations.

Throughout the workshop students will interact with undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty of the Department of Mathematics at Duke University. Learn more about how to apply.

Our past participants have shared their experiences with us on our Testimonials page.

SWiM is co-directed by Professor Ingrid Daubechies and Professor Dorothy Buck.  Shreya Arya is SWiM’s Assistant Director. The program is hosted by the Department of Mathematics at Duke University.

*Due to regulations of online programs for minors that differ internationally, we are only able to accept students who are citizens of and reside in the US.
