Through Math Adventure's math puzzle/theater events, we help kids feel the thrill of learning in a friendly, non-competitive environment, fostering a love of problem-solving, math, and the arts which will - we hope - last a lifetime. We're changing the emotional connection that kids and their parents have with math, from anxiety to fun.

Using the grade-level math they're already learning at school, kids work in teams of four to solve math problems, unlocking clues at each step that lead to the big finale. Kids who participate bring their excitement for learning and problem-solving back with them to their school.
Each event has a theme, some featuring iconic dramas - The Odyssey, King Arthur - while others focus on original narratives. All are acted out by our staff and the school's volunteers, so that kids feel completely immersed in the theme for the whole event.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that kids who have one night of Math Adventure experience change how they feel about math - they see it as a tool that helps them achieve their goals, rather than a chore that might bring anxiety or stress.
