||Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science (IMACS) - (Plantation, FL)
||IMACS is designed to give children a competitive edge by teaching them how to think critically using logic and reasoning. Headquartered in Plantation, Florida, IMACS offers after-school and weekend classes for gifted and talented 1st-12th grade students in math enrichment, computer programming and virtual robotics, electronics, university-level mathematics, and university-level computer science. Classes are held at various locations throughout South Florida and at affiliate locations in Connecticut, Missouri, and North Carolina. Some IMACS locations also offer a fun-filled Hi-Tech Summer Camp. Secondary school students not able to attend a local teaching center may take foundational courses through Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (EMF) or university-level courses through eIMACS, both of which are online.

I would like to express my gratitude to IMACS for educating my children. For the past twelve years we have been a part of the IMACS family. IMACS has helped Pooja and Meghana understand mathematical concepts inside and out. The Computer Enrichment and Computer Science courses have provided them with skills to explore a wider range of career options in college. IMACS has helped make critical and logical thinking skills a norm for my children. Whenever they have a challenging assignment/problem in their classes, I constantly find them saying, "I figured it out the IMACS way."

I want to relate a story that I think is a great reflection on the power of IMACS. When my son first participated in the MathCounts competition for grades 6-8, he won his regional competition although he was only in 6th grade! I feel confident that IMACS played a major role in his success. THANK YOU!!!

At the recommendation of a friend, our daughter started the IMACS program at the beginning of 1st grade. While apprehensive at first, she quickly realized how much fun learning can be thanks to the educational games they play and the friendships she has built. Now that school math has become somewhat easy for her, we've decided to continue along this wonderful path of learning at IMACS. The critical thinking and reasoning skills she is learning will benefit her throughout the educational process, as well as in life. It's hard to overstate the importance of this program, especially when you experience it firsthand. We highly recommend IMACS!
