The annual MathComp/MathFun event and parenting seminar are the flagship events of the CIE/USA-DFW Chapter's youth program. It has served our community for 30 years. Each year, the event attracts nearly 1,000 participants including students, parents, educators, and volunteers. This 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).
This year we will bring the event online to continue to provide educational value and fun for young kids and families. The event will be held on May 30, 2020 and it is FREE. We are extremely happy to have DFWCIA as a co-organizer this year.

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.
