Academic Level:
K-8 Students

At Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), you'll get to experience an environment unlike any other!

For Seventh Graders from NYC: You'll live on a college campus in upstate New York, surrounded by nature as you study new and interesting mathematics taught by the best instructors from across the nation. You'll also enjoy games, sports, and optional field trips like hiking and stargazing.

The program is three weeks and free. We'll also provide a bus from New York City to campus at the start and back at the end. Admissions are competitive: this is a camp for seventh-graders who think they might like math, like solving puzzles, and want to see what else is out there.

For Sixth Graders from NYC and LA: You will spend 5 weeks studying challenging math, including logic, applied math, math fundamentals, and math team strategies. Program staff meet students at pick up points around the city and help them travel to the program. Breakfast and lunch are provided.
