“At GIV I was constantly surrounded by opportunities to expand my knowledge and by people who were aiming to do just that. I felt a sense of community that I had never felt before, a feeling that my lifelong interest really does serve a purpose in the world. I was made quickly aware that I was not alone in my love for math.”
   -A 2014 Math graduate

Surround yourself with math-lovers like you at this week-long festival of mathematics! Theoretical and real-world applications of math will have you dazzled as you enjoy advanced lectures by renowned mathematicians and scientists. We’ll use our hands and brains to take on world-class mathematical challenges, and explore careers for people who like math.

In this Institute, you’ll:

  • Take on advanced math challenges, including mind puzzles that keep mathematicians awake at night!
  • Learn about real-world applications of math
  • Interact with professional mathematicians from the academic and business worlds
  • Meet other teenagers from Vermont who share your interests

In addition to math, we do field trips, play games, and hold a cookout at North Beach. If you’re a Vermont 9th-11th grader who’s completed Algebra II or beyond, received good grades in math or science, and think math is cool, we hope you’ll join us this summer!
