Apply your math strategy skills to the world of engineering!
Are you a budding engineer who loves to solve puzzles and play logic games? Join us for Junior Engineers and Mathematicians! In the mornings, we will introduce new strategies to build number sense and mathematical fluency, and we will reinforce these skills with fun and engaging games and activities each day such as Gravity Maze, Rush Hour, Chocolate Fix, and Balance Beans. We will also spend time playing games in The Rolling Rhombus, SSSAS’s retrofitted math bus!
In the afternoons, we will apply these math strategy and reasoning skills to the world of engineering! Students will have fun developing problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration skills as they make, test, and evaluate creations such as slingshot rockets, paper airplanes, and rocket straws. What elements help to fly faster and higher? These are some of the questions we will be investigating. Basic mathematical concepts will be incorporated as students learn to design and test their equipment.
Junior Engineers and Mathematicians is directed by Ms. Ann Bremner, SSSAS Director of Lower School Mathematics. If you have any questions about this camp, please reach out to Ms. Bremner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
