Atlantic student wins CMS Canada 2015 Math T-shirt Design Contest (Mar 20)
The Canadian Mathematical Society chose SeulBi Kim’s design as the winner of the first ever CMS Canada Math T-shirt Design Contest. SeulBi, a student at Fredericton High School, N.B., designed a T-shirt that featured a globe with equations and explained that, "The t-shirt design represents the idea that math is a language without regions and you can communicate using math all over the world." SeulBi’s design will be featured on over 1,000 math T-shirts distributed across Canada in 2015 to commemorate CMS math camps and competitions. Students across Canada and around the world submitted designs for the inaugural T-shirt contest, which was open for four weeks. More 

An update from Math in Moscow student Stefan Dawydiak (Mar 9)
I’ve been in Moscow now a month, studying away from my home university, UBC, with the Math in Moscow program. Moscow is an enormous city, five times Vancouver’s size, making daily life convenient, if crowded. With the entire city forty minutes away by metro, exploration requires only a few free hours. More
