Rice University School Mathematics Project (RUSMP) Mission: To create a better understanding of the nature, beauty, and importance of mathematics and to promote effective teaching of mathematics. Our mission has expanded to include supporting science, technology, engineering, and the arts as they relate to mathematics. Since its inception in 1987, RUSMP has been providing a bridge between the Rice University mathematics research community and the PreK-12 STEM teaching community across the state and beyond.
There are a very limited number of spots available in RUSMP’s summer camps at St. Mark’s Episcopal School and programs for students at Episcopal High School. Feel free to share the information about these super opportunities for students.
