Firecracker Math Camp combines half-a-day math instructions in the morning followed by fun activities in the afternoon (see below). Our camp is for curious and challenge-loving kids from 6 to 14. Morning classes cover selected topics from number theory, algebra, geometry, combinatorics, graph theory, logic, the basics of computer science. Instructions employ math games, math-based magic tricks, curious paradoxes, and contests to spark kids’ interest and boost their skills and confidence in math. Daily schedule for each age group will be posted two week prior the start day. 

.

We offer a choice of three exciting afternoon programs:

At the Piedmont, Berkeley, and Lafayette sites: Cooking Round the World

Join the Cooking Round the World fun in the afternoon! Kids will cook and eat foods from different countries and cultures, see a slide presentation for context, and play a trivia game about the country of the day. Children walk away with an appreciation of difference, a broadened food pallet, and a desire to see the world. Fun, yum and educational. 

New this summer! At the Berkeley site only, for kids ages 6-12: Yoga and Art  

Through an age-appropriate sequence of yoga poses, fun yoga games and acrobatics, kids will learn about the importance of breathing, balance and body awareness.  read more…
