The Flatland Institute is an e x t r e m e math adventure program. Participants will work together to try to solve f u n mathematical conundrums, which have never - ever - been solved!

The Group

You must be 16-19 yo. to participate - and seek e p i c mathematical challenge.

The Mentors

Program mentors are undergraduate math majors, or have undergraduate or graduate degrees in math; each mentor is an active researcher. The mentor-to-participant ratio is ~1:3-1:6.
