Summer at The Square

Battle Summer Learning Loss at Amazement Square!

Children lose an average of 2 months of math skills over the summer.  Teachers often spend as much as 6 weeks re-teaching material lost over the summer, which eats up valuable classroom time at the beginning of the school year.  This summer, Amazement Square is focusing on math skills with hands-on activities throughout the museum!
