Background of the CMA:

Aengus noticed that kids were having the same issues in maths in classrooms all over the world. He found that using hands-on approaches and creative technology (drones and gopro cameras) to teach math helped kids understand the concepts better. The CMA was created to fulfill this need.

The camps are fun and offer activities in coding, logic, robotics and more.
