Transformations

Summer Camp 2023

June 26 through September 1
One-week sessions, Monday through Friday

9:00 am to 3:00 pm ET (New York)
Extended day options available

Students will experience the richness of mathematics with America’s only museum dedicated to math.  Through interactive education sessions, creative projects, and supervised independent activities, math will come alive for each and every participant.

The Museum offers a mixed-ages camp with attentive counselors at every level.  The Epsilons level for rising first through third graders focuses on helping students cultivate a love for mathematics.  The Deltas level for rising fourth through sixth graders allows campers to fully explore their mathematical interests.  And the Gammas level for rising seventh through ninth graders provides a deep dive into advanced mathematical knowledge and skills.

MoMath’s talented staff will keep campers engaged and entertained with grade-appropriate activities, and the program’s curriculum will feature interactive learning in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Whether your camper is already passionate about mathematics or just starting to explore its wonders, Transformations will expose your camper to cool areas of mathematics not covered in school and stoke the flames for a lifelong appreciation of mathematics.

Transformations 2023 offers five different themes across one-week sessions (Monday through Friday), from June 26 through September 1.  The camp day starts at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm.  The fee per one-week session is $1,300.  Families may sign up for extended-day options for pickup or dismissal anytime before 4:00 pm or 5:00 pm.  Due to the popularity and small size of the program, early registration is recommended.

Camper Sections

Campers will be divided into three sections for age- and grade-appropriate instruction:

Epsilons (for students entering 1st through 3rd grade in fall 2023)

Deltas (for students entering 4th through 6th grade in fall 2023)

Gammas (for students entering 7th through 9th grade in fall 2023)

Attentive camp counselors ensure a fun learning experience.  Our small section sizes encourage individualized instruction and allow opportunities for campers to explore and gain a deeper understanding of mathematics.

Themes and Registration

Each camp theme extends across a one-week session, from Monday through Friday.  The regular camp day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm, and is hosted at MoMath, located at 11 East 26th Street, between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue (New York City).  Each theme is specially designed for specific camp sections and may not be available to all age groups.

Note: Please register each camper separately.

Transformations 2023 offers four inspiring, mathematical themes for rising 1st through 6th graders.

The Secret Math of Computers (for Epsilons and Deltas)
Through interactive activities, explore the basic math behind computer science.  Discover some of the secret instructions and algorithms inside every computer, phone, and tablet; learn about intriguing structures that make it all possible; and play with arithmetic using only 0s and 1s.  Using hands-on projects, investigate the math of computers — without the use of any screens!

Mathematics, Naturally (for Epsilons and Deltas)
Geometric shapes are everywhere in the natural world!  Using photographs, blocks, and measuring tools, explore and construct a variety of surprising shapes that can be found in nature.  Through active investigations and projects, become a nature detective and discover how plants and animals use geometry naturally.

Musical Math (for Epsilons and Deltas)
Why are there so many different kinds of sounds?  What exactly is music?  Join us to explore the math behind music, including such concepts as melody, harmony, and rhythm.  Using hands-on projects, combine math, music, and motion to create a symphony of interactive fun!

Game On! (for Epsilons and Deltas)
Let’s play with math!  Explore the ideas behind some of your favorite and classic games.  Dive into probability, geometry, and more to discover the mathematical ideas behind familiar games such as Tic-Tac-Toe and Rock, Paper, Scissors.  Develop winning strategies while learning, laughing, and playing.  Game on!

 

Transformations 2023 offers one deep-diving, mathematical theme for rising 4th through 9th graders.

Geometry of Change and Motion (for Deltas and Gammas)
Bring the ideas of calculus to life with hands-on projects, drawings, and games.  Discover the beauty of the math behind change and motion, while exploring paradoxes, parabolas, orbits, and the laws of physics.  Have fun exploring the ideas of calculus — no algebra required!
