After a great deal of preparation in the preceding months, our Virtual Program pilot, the Spring 2021 session, started in March 2021. Four teachers taught our very first courses to twenty students.
Some fun things that happened at Spring '21:
- Linguistics streams.
- Spontaneous orchestra (the first one).
- The n - 5 game.
- The Half of It.
- Getting trolled by hard AIME problems.
- Conversations about femininity.
- Folding origami with your feet.
Here is what our students thought of it:
"I really liked it! I think it helped me improve my geometry skills more. The people were really cool and fun to hang out with (both students and staff), and they were all really admirable. I had something to learn from every one of the people."
"Overall, I really liked this program. I learned not only math but also other stuff, such as Hanabi, and I think the community is very nice and helpful."
"The program was fun and informative! It almost felt like a summer camp, especially since I hope to keep in touch with the lovely people I met through the program!"
It wasn't perfect, but it was a good experience for everyone involved and we're super excited to iterate and improve in the fall!
