We’ve created Basecamp to provide self-directed and aspiring self-directed teens a supportive and engaging home base for online learning explorations. Participation in Basecamp includes access to a choice of programs, innovative content, online field trips, monthly guest speakers, and weekly video-based coaching sessions. Participants can interact with the program content in several ways that include self-guided, small study groups, and live video sessions.

All MathLab sessions are recorded for participants to view or review later.
