Download Event Flyer
* All students Grades 1~8 are welcome! *
The Annual MathComp/MathFun event and Parenting Seminar are the flagship events of the CIE/USA-DFW Chapter's youth program. Each year, they attract nearly 1,000 participants including students, parents, educators, and volunteers. This grand math fair consists of three programs: (1) a math competition, (2) a math fun fair, and (3) a parenting seminar. The goal is to stimulate young students' interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) subjects.
The first program "MathComp" (Math Competition) provides young students an opportunity to demonstrate their math problem solving skills. Registration is required. Early registration fee is $15 before May 16th, then $20 before May 27th. All students Grades 1~8 are welcome!
Contestants will participate only for the same grade he or she is at the 2018-2019 academic year. Sandbagging may result in being disqualified. Top scorers and honorable mentions will be awarded to each grade, and the names of the winners will be published on the CIE/USA-DFW Chapter's website.
Parenting Seminar and Panel Discussion:
While students are competing at the MATH test, all parents are invited to attend the Parenting Seminar and Panel Discussion (the second program), which is free to MathComp participants' parents.2019 Speakers and Panelists:

His research area is in applied mathematics related to computational neuroscience, optical diffusive tomography and mathematical biology.
Jett Wang (Student)
Jett Wang is incoming 2019 MIT freshman. He has been active in high school math contests, and qualified for the 2019 USA Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) team. He is also 2018 USA Physics Olympiad Bronze Medalist.
Richard Luo (Student)
Richard is a senior student from Highland Park high school. An avid STEM enthusiast, he gained his first exposure to competition math at the CIE Math Competition. He competed in many years, and continued his involvement by volunteering at many CIE events. Richard will attend Harvard in the Fall 2019.
The third program "MathFun" is an interactive program which allows parents and children to work together in solving engineering quizzes & games and stimulating their interest in mathematics. Each year, around 20 schools, companies, institutions, and organizations bring interesting math and engineering materials onsite and interact with the students. This is the fun part of the fair that students look forward to. Don't miss this great opportunity to get your students involved in the wonderful world of math and engineering! MathFun is open to general public.

The Chinese Institute of Engineers (CIE) was founded in 1917 in New York by a group of Chinese engineers who graduated from American universities and served in various industries in the United States. CIE’s mission is to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) awareness all over the United States. The DFW Chapter was established in January 1989 and registered in the state of Texas as a non-profit organization in 1992. Over the years, the DFW chapter has established close ties with major corporations and government bodies around the world. Leaders from these sponsoring organizations are featured in the chapter’s annual convention by sharing their experiences and insights in business and technology.
