Integración Matemática (Mexico)
Currently a student in the United States, Cruz Herrera is the founder of Mexico-based non-profit organisation Integración Matemática (ILM). ILM is an intriguing school where you can find 14-year-olds teach math to 12-year-olds. Having had first-hand experience with the inability of the government to provide resources to public school students, Herrera created his own solution. Instead of having the kids sit in college math classes like he had to do, he offers them a free 4-year-opportunity of weekly training, access to math competitions and summer programmes. He believes that “ if [they] can make students aware of their capacities to learn by themselves with few resources, [they] can maximize their opportunities."
