Hundreds of young students have attended the Mathworks Honors Summer Math Camp (HSMC) over the past 20 years. Alumni of our HSMC have gone on to great success in advanced academic study and budding careers. The formative experiences of the HSMC develops and builds future leaders who are able to make an impact on and give back to society.
HSMC students apply to and are frequently admitted into the nation's top-tier universities. Almost 80% of HSMC alumni go on to major in math, science, or engineering in college. The large number of HSMC alumni at some of the nation's best colleges provides a welcoming community to new students. The network of HSMC alumni remains active during a student's academic career and beyond.
The top five colleges that HSMC alumni attend are:
As part of the HSMC, returning students have the opportunity to conduct original math research with university professors. Our students have done exceptionally well in national research competitions, such as the Intel ISEF and the Siemens Competition in Math, Science, & Technology. A full listing of HSMC student results in the Siemens Competition can be seen here.
To date, seven HSMC alumni have been named U.S. Presidential Scholars. This is one of the highest national awards that recognizes the top high school seniors across the country.
The Presidential Scholars Program is a nonpartisan, public-private partnership designed to recognize and provide leadership development experiences for some of America's most outstanding graduating high-school seniors. The 141 students named annually as Presidential Scholars represent excellence in education and the promise of greatness in young people.
The Texas MathCounts team that competes at the national level has included JSMC and HSMC alumni for many years now.
