Summer Workshop in Mathematics (SWiM) is a free 7-day online workshop for rising senior high school students who are interested in mathematics, with a particular focus on advancing female participation in math. All students currently in their junior year of high school who reside in the US and are US citizens are eligible. Female and female-identifying students are encouraged to apply. Throughout the workshop students will interact with undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty of the Department of Mathematics at Duke University.

SWiM2021 will take place virtually from June 15-23 of 2021. All participants will, via Zoom, attend two math courses, afternoon group work, SWiM lectures given by local professors at Duke, UNC and NCSU. Participants in the program learn not only about exciting mathematics, but also about discovering new arguments, and explaining insights to their peers. The participants will give a group presentation at the end of the program. All the presentations will be broadcast in live stream video. Participants will also attend useful panel discussions.
