Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- School may not be in session yet, but some students spent the day brushing up on their math skills.

Today was the second Family Fun Math Night, which was held this afternoon in Louisville. The West Louisville Math and Science Project helps students, ages Preschool through High School.

There were more than 40 activities for them to do involving math.

Leaders say the subject is crucial to teach students about at an early age.

"This is a community effort. We cannot just say this is the parents job," said West Louisville Math and Science Project volunteer Eboni Cochran. "We have to make sure every child in our community gets support from everyone in the community."

Leaders of today's event say they had a good crowd, and a tremendous outpouring of support from volunteers. The event was free and open to the public.
