The Academy is strengthening its STEM programs through the partnership with NYIT.  Students will work with the graduate students at NYIT on various programming and research work using Rasberry PIs.

 

The Academy is also participating in the White House Computer Science for All. This program ensures progress on expanding Computer Science Education in participating schools. In US, only a quarter of schools offer a CS course with programming included.  The Academy has submitted its increased commitments to the program and has had tremendous progress toward its goals.

 

Bridges enters its second year of partnership with the Russian School of Mathematics.  Registration is open to all Bridges and Non-Bridges Students.

This is an award-winning Mathematics Program that coupled with the Bridges excellent Math Program helps children build math skills and critical thinking.  For more information click here.
