In a double outreach feature, ESAM graduate students presented Applied Math in Action to 40 seniors from the Spry Community Links High School in Little Village (Chicago) at lunch time and to 50 Schuler Scholars over dinner. In Mathemagic, a card trick was powered by writing numbers in base 3. Watching Mice Think brought together chemistry, neuroscience, and mathematics to extract neuronal activity from fluorescing neurons of mice that are running on a treadmill. Efficient M&M Storage converted a Monte Carlo algorithm for an industrial-size wine storage problem to a game with dice to store different colored M&Ms. The outreach was led by the student outreach coordinator Brit Schneiders (RTG-funded) and mentored by faculty Alvin Bayliss and Hermann Riecke. The presentations were given by Andre Archer, Eric Autry, Valerie Bullock, Joel Eliason, David Miller, and Angelia Wang.
