The BEAM Discovery program is a 5-week camp focused on mathematics and problem-solving. In addition to the classes, they will build community with other students and the staff, as well as enjoying activities such as online board games, new languages, and virtual zoo tours.
BEAM is completely free and they will get you the things you need to join them. If they run online, this includes a computer, a care package with activity supplies and other technology, and a gift card for meals. BEAM can also provide support with the internet if you don’t have access or it doesn’t work well.
All BEAM summer programs for 2021 will be online. Class and activity times are spread out between 9 am and 5 pm, with breaks throughout the day to help avoid screen fatigue.
BEAM targets audiences that identify as low-income students who don’t have the local resources to learn math to their full potential. Most BEAM students are financially eligible for free/reduced-price lunch at school. They occasionally accept students who have higher income if they demonstrate exceptional mathematical potential and attend a school that cannot meet their academic needs. BEAM Discovery summer camps are available for 6th and 7th graders.
