This is a series of monthly workshops that invite students in grades 4 to 12 to explore math in a nontraditional environment. They are a complement to our summer program, however, there’s no commitment to attend the summer camp when coming to the workshops or vice versa. Students are welcome to join BTCM for any sessions they can and want. It is not mandatory to come to all, as sessions are independent.
We welcome all students, whether they already have an interest in math or not, and even if they don’t like math (so far). BTCM are a great way to get to know another side of math, as we explore research-level problems, but with the appropriate level for the youth. Our workshops often link math with other topics of interest like art.
BTCM is for those students who are interested in attending the summer camp and want to start preparing for it, but also for those who can’t or are unsure about attending the summer camp but want to give it a try.
The workshops will generally be held on the last Saturday or Sunday of every month (although there are a few exceptions). Currently, the workshops are offered in-person.
This is a free event.
