Learning through discovery, creativity and adventure is the corner stone of our educational philosophy, promoting critical thinking, problem solving and educated risk taking through challenging, stimulating, intensive programmes and residential summer camps (Age range 8-17 yrs).
Connemara Maths Academy was founded by Aengus O’Connor in 2013 initially to help students in Ireland become inspired, creative, problem solving students and to be fluent in key mathematical concepts through imaginative, multi disciplinary approaches to learning, utilising various disciplines from film production to music technology while exploring key mathematical concepts.
CMA’s programmes have since developed to further include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths) related elements such as 3D Modelling & Printing, Rocket Building, Robotics, Music Technology and Stop Motion Animation. During the academic year September to June, CMA works with schools around the country such as Ireland’s premier secondary school Glenstal Abbey where CMA visit schools and deliver workshops. CMA also offer customised residential programmes To schools and groups in Connemara, where it is based.
CMA Residential Summer Camps have three key elements, namely STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths) Workshops, Adventure Activities and Team Sports.
