These one-week activity-filled half-day math camps for students entering 2nd-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 will leave the camps more energized and enthusiastic about mathematics and the other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) disciplines.
These ten-day math programs are designed for students entering 7th-grade math, 8th-grade math, Algebra I, or Geometry. Through the lens of computational thinking, students explore mathematics using technology to develop inductive and visual reasoning. Hands-on activities integrating mathematics and computer science provide an innovative approach to learning mathematics.
This twelve-day math program is designed for students who have completed precalculus. At the end of this program, students will be better equipped for the rigor of college-level mathematics and for success on A. P. Calculus and I. B. Mathematics exams. Proof, justification, and authentic problems will be explored using a variety of methods including graphing technology and other computing tools.
The Rice University School Mathematics Project offers exciting enrichment STEM camp for Austin area students currently in grades 8 – 11 at the Harmony Science Academy.
This camp is ideal for students who would like to explore STEM research in one of the following areas:
(1.) Biology and Biomedical Engineering
(2.) Civil and Environmental Engineering
(3.) Computer Science
Students refined and deepened their understanding of important STEM concepts by working on research projects of their own design under the direction of award-winning Rice faculty and staff from the Rice University School Mathematics Project and will receive personalized feedback of their research. Students left well prepared to present their research at national and international science fairs.
RUSMP collaborates with the John Cooper School, Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA), and Spring Branch ISD 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.
