Art of Problem Solving Initiative, Inc.

Founded in 2004, the Art of Problem Solving Initiative, Inc. was created by people who love math and love teaching to help students access the study of advanced mathematics. The main project of the Initiative is Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), a project to help underserved students find a realistic pathway towards becoming scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and programmers. During the summer after 7th grade, students are invited to participate in a free three-week residential program on a college campus where they gain the academic and social/emotional preparation to succeed in future programs for advanced study. They then receive academic advising throughout 8th grade and high school to help them and their families find the best opportunities for their educations.
