May 17: Math Adventure Registration Open

Calling all Bennett Secret Agents! On May 17, report to headquarters for details of your next mission. A spy satellite has fallen to earth, and our agency needs to recover the parts. Your task is to solve math puzzles coded with clues that might solve this mission. Activate your team here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/secretagent

Math Adventure is a theater+math PTSA event that promotes the thrill of collaborative problem-solving in a friendly, non-competitive environment. Registration is open to all Bennett students.
