## NEW Math & Science Programs

Our STEAM AfterSchool program was so popular this year, we decided to add a STEAM element to Summer Camp. Below are the exciting new **Math & Science programs** we are offering. The program runs Monday through Thursday from 2:00-4:00pm. Students receive about 8 hours of instruction for each week of Math & Science class.

## Science

The Science program teaches a variety of science topics including, but not limited to: geology, astronomy, mechanical engineering & biology. Kids will use critical analytical thinking and math reasoning; they will practice higher order of thinking;they will be introduced to flexible and adaptive thinking, and will use hands on learning to accomplish their goals. Some of the many fun projects are DNA Strands Project (Anatomy), Detective Fossils, Making Rock Candy (Geology), Making Homemade Cookie Dough (Science of food), and Candy Catapult (Mechanical Engineering).

## Math Tutoring

It’s easy for a struggling student to get lost in a big classroom, especially in a tough subject like math. To help students get the personal attention they need to thrive in today’s competitive educational environment, C3 Cyber Club now offers mathematics tutoring for students of all ages.

Our math tutoring has three goals:

Prepare students for exams

Establish a strong foundation for future learning

Reignite a passion for math in struggling students

**The MATH Program** has been developed by math teachers and experts. It builds students’ fundamental math knowledge so that they can meet or exceed Virginia’s mathematical standards, some of the highest math standards in the United States. The program enables students to score well on the Mathematics Standard of Learning test that Virginia students must take annually.

Students who enroll in the MATH program will start by taking a pre-assessment test for their grade level to identify math weaknesses and strengths. Parents will receive a report with this information. We will customize the program to address each student’s specific learning difficulties by providing lessons and worksheets that build their math skills in those specific areas. Students will have lessons in small groups, learning topics they haven’t been taught yet in their grade level and higher grade levels. Parents will receive updates on their student’s progress throughout the program.

This customized program insures students make significant progress in a short amount of time. The program makes the most of students’ math study time by focusing on learning difficulties and by limiting tutoring session to 1 hour, the maximum attention span for most students. Trained instructors assist students with math exercises and help guide them through the problem solving process. Parents can rest easy knowing their child is well prepared for annual testing.
