Crazy 8s Math Club @ Room A

Join us for a new season of Crazy 8s! Crazy 8s is an after-school math club designed to get kids fired up about math. Every week Crazy 8ers build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess… all while bonding with new friends over math. With more than 6,000 clubs serving over 80,000 kids, it may already be America’s biggest math club for kids.

Ages: 3rd-5th

Weekly Sessions:

  • Ninja Training: Sneak through a maze of laser shapes without setting off alarms. Then find
    hidden number patterns while exchanging secret ninja handshakes!
  • Planet Party: Discover secrets of the Earth and Moon – using glowsticks! See how far the Earth
    and Moon really travel by circling around in their orbits, and try to keep up.
  • Crayon Craze: Sort, compare, and estimate the number of crayons in a big pile. See if your
    crayon count is the right amount to keep you alive in a game of odds and evens!
  • UFO Landing: Now’s your chance to catch sight of UFOs! Fly paper airplanes to see whose
    travels farthest then craft giant origami Ninja Stars to see how they measure up.
  • Cowabunga: Play with numbers as you become fence-hopping cows, and make up patterns to jump
    over the fence. Try to wrangle cows into fences of different sizes. Can you fit them all in?
  • Fraction Action: You’ll go fishing for fractions in this week’s under-the-sea adventure! We’ll
    play our own version of Go Fish then become the fractions as a whole group having a whole lot of
    fun.
  • Pixel-palooza: It’s hip to be a square! Create large pixelly pictures of mini-figures out of Postit® Notes! Dream up and plan out other creations, and see if you can build them.
  • Pirate Treasure Hunt: Map out coordinates to create a secret picture. Use your cannon to
    reach the enemy pirates, and try to get the treasure before they do!
