These two-week activity-filled half-day math camps for students entering 1st-grade through 6th-grade engage students in fun, hands-on mathematics investigations and games with connections to science, technology, engineering, and the visual arts. Students leave the camps more energized and enthusiastic about mathematics and the other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) disciplines. For current camp offerings please visit: https://rusmp.rice.edu/register/students.
Current programs include math programs for middle school and high school students who want to enrich their mathematics backgrounds, prepare for their next math courses, and explore mathematics topics that may not be emphasized during the school year and a new pilot STEM program focusing on the oil and gas industry.

RUSMP has collaborated with the Spring Branch ISD, John Cooper School, and Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA) to design innovative STEM curriculum, with connections to the arts. These curricula are used for their summer camps and programs for students. RUSMP also conducted professional development for camp and program instructors in the use of these materials.
RUSMP is collaborating with the Rice University Department of Mathematics to sponsor the Rice University Math Circle. These weekend sessions explore mathematics not typically studies in school settings. For more information please visit: https://math.rice.edu/Outreach/MathCircle/index.html.
