Calculate and Create(C+C) is a STEAM-based K-5 program rooted in the real-world use of mathematics to create meaningful and useful learning tools and craft projects. Each student who participates in the program is engaged in the hands-on practical use of mathematics as they create a series of handcrafted items. Each mathematics concept presented in Calculate and Create is standards-based and focused on the improvement of each student’s overall mathematical identity and confidence. 

       Throughout the C+C session, students go through a kid-prenuer journey of being a consumer, manufacturer, and retailer to produce an end product to be proud of. Throughout each session students will complete 4 full lessons in which they will create a finished project. You will be provided a supply list to get items need on your own or a C+C materials box can be shipped to you at an additional fee of $50. Projects will be a combination of craft styles, allowing your child to explore the world of handmade crafting and its possibilities. Due to that nationwide shortage of affordable beginner sewing machines, we have postponed the facilitation of machine sewn crafts, however, we will continue incorporate learning the important skill of hand-sewing.

Calculate and Create cleverly answers the question, “Why do we need math?” through seamlessly integrated mathematics application with creative, hands-on learning.
