Math Monday is a 12-week after school math program for young people in grades 3-7 with a focus on problem-solving, study skills, and math enrichment. The Learning Lab empowers parents who want to get their kids engaged in and excited about mathematics through authentic learning experiences, including real-life problems, hands-on activities and integration of the latest technology hardware and software. 

Math Monday Methods Backed by Research
Research shows that programs like Math Monday, which focus on improving students’ attitudes toward math with engaging, fun activities, can affect how those students perform in math classes and on assessments. A 2012 study of over 1500 students in grades 5-12 found a correlation between positive math attitudes and increased math achievement. According to this study’s authors, "achievement is usually related to self-belief in competence...[and] when students succeed at a math task, it increases their sense of competence and this may promote more positive attitudes" (de Lourdes Mata, Monteiro, & Peixoto, 2012).

Genius Camp 2016 ended on July 22 with a trip to the Pensacola MESS Hall and a grand finale at the Lab where campers displayed their passion projects and the underwater remote operated vehicles (ROVs) they built this summer. In its second year, Genius Camp was bigger and better--we expanded to six weeks from four and doubled our space.  With 25 campers and and their families, Genius Camp continues to build its legacy as the premier summer STEM experience for young people in the New Orleans area. We cannot wait for summer 2017! 

Please check out the video linked above to learn more about what we did this summer.
