The Applied Mathematics Mentorship Program (AMMP)

The Applied Mathematics Mentorship Program (AMMP) engages Grades 7, 8 & 9 students in small research teams to investigate a mathematics question relevant to heat islands in their community, the spread of COVID-19 in their community, or current aerospace efforts. STEM professionals of color are embedded throughout the program, as mirrors and windows in students’ mathematical experience. AMMP was collaboratively created by The Curtis Center, SpaceX Engineers, LA startup Conservify and the UCLA Applied Mathematics group as part of Balance the Equation , the first ever Gates Grand Challenge for U.S. education. We can work with you to bring AMMP to your school!
