On December 3, 2011, I had the privilege of facilitating the first ever Design Charrette for the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy–a residential school for scholarly high school students. The Design Charrette served to work-out intense plans and strategies for the future growth and accelerated impact IMSA is to have on students, teachers, and our whole Nation in the areas of Mathematics and Science education. Below is one snapshot of the intense work being done by participants of the Design Charrette. Watch closely the work of IMSA president Dr. Max McGee and that of his Board, educators and students at IMSA. They will continue to be a formidable force in the advancement of Mathematics and the Sciences in Illinois and our Nation.
Happy New Year!
