Our Calculus Course
Our 2018 Calculus Course:
21 girls joined us for a one week calculus intensive. The course also included computer science activities and an astronomy and planetary science lecture.
In only 5 days, the girls learnt most of the material covered in a semester-long calculus course. At the end of the week, they completed a calculus test, and 2 girls obtained a perfect score. We asked a few graduate students (currently working towards their PhDs in STEM fields) to take the same test and their average scores were 85. Six of the girls from the summer program beat the graduate students' mean score.
We are currently working on the second edition of our Calculus program that will take place in Curitiba, Brazil in December 2019.
We are also gearing up for a Los Angeles version in June/July of 2020. If you are a student or teacher interested in bringing this program to your school, please get in touch!
