For months we’ve been dropping hints that a change was coming. And today is our big reveal!
Meet Zeno – the next evolution of Explorations in Math!
Why Change Our Name?
Put simply, we wanted a name that better reflects who we are and the work we do. We are incredibly proud of our history as Explorations in Math and as we stand on the precipice of growth, we are learning what makes our approach unique. After 9 years of developing and expanding our programs and spreading the joy of math inside and outside the school walls, the evidence of math culture has taken shape. Math clubs have waitlists, thousands fill gyms and community centers to play math at MathFest and parents are discovering they can be math powered too. This new name will allow us to more effectively communicate our mission, tell our story and prepare us for growth. For us, Zeno will change the game.
Who and What is Zeno? What all is changing?
Zeno of Elea was a Greek philosopher who was one of the first to talk about the concept of infinity. That inspired us to imagine the infinite possibilities that arise from being exposed to positive math experiences. Our mission is not changing, our focus is not changing – but Zeno better reflects who we are and where we want to go as an organization! We’re putting some fresh paint on our program materials and website. Bear with us as you may see some bumps along the way. But change is good! You’ll see a new name, new logo and a new enthusiasm but the same commitment to bringing unique and unexpected math experiences to kids, teachers and families.
We are Zeno. Math Powered.
By igniting curiosity and confidence, we believe every child can be Math Powered. This curiosity and confidence stems from experiencing math in FUN and unique ways and transforming attitudes and skills around math. We are thrilled about what this new step will bring us – thank you for your friendship and support. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about the change!
