BEAM 6 Family Lunch

This past Saturday, April 29th, our new BEAM 6 students and their families attended our Family Welcome Lunch to learn more about the program. Our BEAM 6 alumni joined us to talk to families about what it's really like to be a BEAM 6 student. Kai, Lismary, Maryam, Storm and Thays talked about why they chose to come to BEAM and gave our future BEAM 6ers some GREAT advice! Read more from our experts! 

question: Why did you decide to come to beam?

Math was too simple in my school. I wanted something to challenge me.
— Storm, 7th grade
I came to BEAM to learn advanced math because my school didn’t provide it.
— Kai, 7th grade

Question: What was your favorite part of beam?

It was great to be in a community with other students that love math too. I’ve always loved math but was never challenged.
— Lismary, 7th grade
In my school it is rare to like math. BEAM 6 allowed me to meet people that also liked math and be in a community of dedicated people.
You want students to have all the possibilities and BEAM did that for me.
— Thays, 7th grade

question: How is 7th grade like, After having finished beam?

I take a regents math class and I use what I learned in BEAM 6 to answer difficult questions.
— Maryam, 7th grade
Going back to my class was easy, but I also learned how to approach problems differently
— Kai, 7th grade

Welcome 6th graders! We are so excited to spend our summer with you.
