an IBP member program

Academic Level:
K-8 Students

At Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), young students get to experience an environment unlike any other!

For Sixth Graders from NYC and LA: Spend 5 weeks studying challenging math, including logic, applied math, math fundamentals, and math team strategies.

BEAM ran with virtual programming for '20, and provided tech/resources needed so the students could participate fully in online programs.

Please encourage students to apply who may like math & solving puzzles. They'll learn about logic (how to think mathematically), fundamentals (the “why” of math), team strategies (how to be faster/clever), and applied math (where math is in the world around us).
