Transformations 2015, Summer Program

Transformations, the summer program at MoMath, meets from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday through Friday. Early drop off and late pick up is available for an additional fee.

 

MoMath is gearing up for an exciting summer program!

First through eighth graders will experience the richness of mathematics in America's only museum dedicated to math, where full-body interactives, hands-on education sessions, and programs in arts, music, and movement will make math come alive for each and every participant.  Whether your child is already passionate about mathematics or just starting to explore its wonders, Transformations will expose your child to cool areas of mathematics not covered in school and stoke the flames for a lifelong appreciation of mathematics.

This year's summer program will feature an Epsilons level for rising first through third graders, and a Deltas level for rising fourth through eighth graders.  MoMath's skilled and experienced staff will keep campers engaged and entertained with grade-appropriate activities, and the program's curriculum will feature hands-on learning in a warm and friendly atmosphere.  With Madison Square Park just outside MoMath's front door, there are even opportunities for fun in the sun.

Each camp session includes:

  • Two daily educator-led activities focused on a cool area of math not covered in school

  • Two weekly, hands-on activities centered on the math behind MoMath’s state-of-the-art exhibits

  • Special activities each week focused on the math of art, music, and movement

  • The opportunity to interact with other campers who share a love of math

  • The ability to go behind the scenes and learn how the Museum was conceived, designed, and built

  • A souvenir Transformations t-shirt featuring a MoMath-style logo created by each camper

Weekly programs start July 6th, and run through August 28th.  Sign up for one week, or sign up for them all!
