Several months ago, Jill Montaquila asked for volunteers to work at the ASA booth during the USA Engineering and Science Festival that was held on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Beth Goodman’s first reaction was that, of course, she would volunteer. Being a high-school teacher, she wanted to be part of something that would allow her to share her love of mathematics and statistics. Additionally, she thought it would be a good opportunity for her children. The experience did not disappoint; in fact, it exceeded her expectations.
