Transformations 2016 Summer Program

 Registration is closed for this event

Below is information about the Summer 2016 camp at MoMath.  If you are looking for Fall 2016 camps, please click here.

Flex your math muscles this summer!

First through eighth graders will experience the richness of mathematics in America's only museum dedicated to math.  Through full-body interactive activities, hands-on education sessions, and creative projects, math will come alive for each and every participant. 

MoMath offers a mixed ages camp with opportunities for differentiated learning and dedicated camp counselors at each level.  The Epsilons level for rising first through third graders focuses on instilling a love for mathematics.  The Deltas level for rising fourth through eighth graders allows campers to fully explore their mathematical interests.

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.  Weather permitting, campers spend the lunch period in the park every day.

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.

 

 

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 games
  • The opportunity to interact with other campers who share a love of math
  • A souvenir Transformations t-shirt

Weekly programs start July 11th, and run through September 2nd.  Four theme topics are offered this summer, repeated each month.
