Description: This mathematical "summer camp" on the Duluth campus, one of the several dozen math REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) programs funded by the National Science Foundation at colleges and universities around the U.S. In operation since the late 1970s, the Duluth program is the oldest and perhaps best known of the math REUs; it's also notorious for being the toughest to get into, . Twenty-two Duluth participants have been Putnam fellows, and 21 have been members of International Mathematical Olympiad teams.

I saw this article on the Art of Problem Solving site, and I recall there is interest in programs like this among parents. Parents and educators should read this article.
