Applied Math in Action!
Applied Math in Action! 2021 is a virtual two-week program for high school and pre-college students to discover how math can be applied to many different fields and to inspire and inform them about STEM fields of study and careers.
Along with math sessions involving problems and games, there will be speakers and virtual tours from local DC agencies that use math: National Security Agency (NSA) National Cryptologic Museum, NASA Goddard, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Students will have a taste of college life by experiencing a community of like-minded peers and CUA undergraduate STEM student counselors as well as expert CUA faculty. The program assumes basic high school math.
