Integrators: The MoMath High School Volunteer Program (in person)
MoMath accepts a limited number of high school students for ongoing volunteer roles during summer vacation and/or the academic year.  The Integrators program offers a unique chance to improve interpersonal and communication skills, explore mathematical concepts, and learn valuable job skills.  MoMath Integrators interact with visitors (on the Museum floor or online) and train with professional educators, interpreters, and managers.  Students who participate during summer vacation commit five days per week, while school-year participants commit approximately one day per week, typically a Saturday or Sunday, from September through June.  Learn more at integrators.momath.org.

School field trips and other educational opportunities (in person/online)
MoMath offers almost two dozen educator-led sessions for K-12 students, ranging from constructing polygons to creating Möbius strips, available either in person or online.  Bring your students to MoMath for a peek into the exciting world of mathematics, and see why students and teachers of all ages love the Museum.  Or, let MoMath come to you — choose from a range of on-campus options, including MoMath educator-led activities or MoMath traveling exhibits.  Learn more and register at fieldtrips.momath.org.

Title I schools are eligible for free programs and field trips (in person/online)
MoMath’s free outreach programs for Title I schools include in-person and online field trips to the Museum, workshops presented by experienced MoMath educators in your classroom, and visits to your school by Math Midway 2 Go (MM2GO), MoMath’s travelling suite of original mathematical exhibits.  Support for these programs is now available, thanks to contributions from individuals and organizations including: Judith Gibbons and Francesco Scattone, Con Edison, The Scripps Family Fund for Education and the Arts, Two Sigma, the Hearst Foundations, the Manhattan Community Awards Program (MCAP), and New York City Council Members Carlina Rivera (Council District 2) and Mercedes Narcisse (Council District 46).  These programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.  To apply for one of these free programs, visit titleone.momath.org.  Interested in sponsoring one of them?  Email donation@momath.org.
