About IMACS Staff

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 North Carolina, St. Louis, and Connecticut. Secondary school students not able to attend a local teaching center may take foundational online courses through Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (EMF) or university-level courses through eIMACS.

And that’s a big issue for parents of talented students
