Math Explorer

The Math Explorer program is a collection of hands-on mathematics games and activities designed to engage middle school youth in standards-based mathematics learning while supporting the unique needs of after-school staff.

The program invites young people to fly planes and launch rockets, play games, and make cool stuff to take home, while reinforcing a variety of math skills. Without the kids realizing it, their math attitudes and aptitudes begin to change.

The Math Explorer program was created by the Exploratorium, San Francisco’s nationally recognized leader in inquiry-based, hands-on education.
