Ab7G Summer Program

The inaugural 2020 Ab7G Summer Program

The inaugural 2020 Ab7G summer program presents an excellent opportunity for new 3rd grade families to engage, and for year-round engagement for our rising 4th, 5th, and 6th-grade participants. The camp presents various opportunities for students such as:

  • Students will engage in an artificially intelligent assessment and learning system to reach math mastery.
  • Students will be matched with a Purdue Student Mentor. In conjunction with their mentor, students will establish weekly and summer learning goals.
  • Students will work with their virtual group mates to hone their math skills through fun activities and games.
  • Students, parents, and siblings too, will participate in weekly project time; designed to engage families in fun STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts.
