JiJi is the beloved penguin in the game-based learning program ST MathEvery time a student demonstrates understanding of a math concept, JiJi crosses the screen, signaling success and leading the way to a more challenging puzzle.

JiJi Day is an opportunity to celebrate math and the growth mindset JiJi encourages in students: perseverance through challenges, a love of learning, and the thrill of success.
