Math Corps Awarded NSF Grant!

The National Science Foundation has awarded the Math Corps a multi-million dollar grant to develop and study the replication of the program! In the short term, this grant will help us implement and study the program here in Cleveland and at new sites in Philadelphia, PA and Utica, NY. In the longer term, the research supported by this grant will help us understand what makes the Math Corps so effective, and how best to start programs in new locations. Check out Cleveland State's press release or the listing on the NSF's website.



2017 Super Saturday Program

We will be holding a Super Saturday program this spring! The 2017 Super Saturday Program will be held at Case Western Reserve University, and will run from January 21-March 11, 2017. We will meet on Saturdays from 8:30am until 12:45pm.





The Student Technical Enrichment Program (STEP)

7th – 9th grade students in the greater Cleveland area should check out the Student Technical Enrichment Program (STEP). STEP is an educational outreach program designed to peak students’ interest in career fields involving mathematics, science, engineering and other technically related fields. Through the use of Saturday tours to different sites, the students are able to see first hand the ways in which various jobs use these backgrounds as a foundation to complete a job function within their community. It is a primary goal of the program to develop and strengthen the future workforce in the field of mathematics, science, technology and engineering. The students will discover that mathematics and science are fun, that it is interesting to learn about these subjects in school, and how it directly affects their everyday lives.

Apply by Friday, September 4th. Applications available here.



The National Society of Black Engineers JR Chapter

The National Society of Black Engineers JR Chapter at Case Western Reserve University Is recruiting interested high school students to participate in the club this year. This is a great opportunity to come to a college campus regularly and explore the many engineering disciplines.

The first meeting is to be held in NORD HALL 212 from 10-12 on Saturday, September 12th. Applications available here and a schedule is available here.






Updates on the Math Corps Family

Our very own Anaya Spencer and Shadarria Robinson helped to make this video on permutations for the MathVideo Challenge. The public voted the video into the top 100 of the competition. A panel of judges then nominated them to the top 20, and they were finally nominated into the final four by another panel of judges! They will travel to Washington, DC to present their video in the 2016 Raytheon MathCounts National Competition in May. We will be giving them hand rolls from Cleveland - best of luck!
