The 2024 Design Team For The Biggest Winner Math Challenge is forming NOW!

As  the Massachusetts 2023 Summer Biggest Winner Math Challenge ends its 2023 summer season, Ed Inquiry will begin assembling a very talented team of educators, education researchers, data analysts, coders and developers as well as  instructional designers, graphic artists and experienced project leaders.

All coming together with their broad range of cultural perspectives, expertise and lived experiences to ensure that a new and innovative model of project-based learning evolves offering more students the opportunity to experience innovations in student engagement, math instruction and the use of the new virtual space. The result?   A transformative learning experience  for advanced and motivated math students.

All participants (students, teen interns, national cohort of instructors) of the 2024 Biggest Winner Match Challenge will be working, learning and collaborating in a virtual environment as a part of an innovative new pilot program to inspire middle school students that love math while exposing high school students to the world of work and teaching.  

Biggest Winner Math Challenge and The Ed Inquiry Teen Leader Program are growing and making an impact on the lives of advanced public school students and teens across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and beyond.
