Math, Marvels, & More – Completing Grades K-2

Liquid States, Number Traits & Creative Greats

What creeps up the side of a glass, creates its own drops, rises above the rim of a glass without spilling, and expands as it freezes? Water! Can we make it snow in the summertime? Fossilize raindrops? Create an explosive chemical reaction with water? In scientific terms – chromatography, surface tension skippers – we’ll be measuring up FUN! Then dive into the deep sea and design your own sea monsters for our nautical city! Explore the kaleidoscopic depths of aquatic creativity – drama, 3D art and more! And can you count without numbers or calculate without place value? Have you ever interpreted a Peruvian quipu or added in Babylonian? Math didn’t just happen: It had to be invented! Match wits with the ancients as we explore number systems from all corners of the globe. All the while, looking for the answer to the ultimate life question: How do you get inside a bubble?

Academy Themes Connect With Physical Training
An integral part of each Summer Academy experience, our physical training (PT) is no ordinary play time. Activities are directly linked to each Summer Academy. For example, in Math, Marvels & More, enjoy scooterboard math games and cooperative math aerobics. Space cadets will use teamwork in their cooperative games as they prepare for space travel. No matter the era or interest, PT always spells F-U-N!
