A rural STEAM centre aims at developing responsibility in children, the courage to create projects and the competency to work together in this collaborative learning environment. Here children have freedom and responsibility to plan what they work on, develop mastery in Mathematics through projects in electronics and programming, work individually or with peers, etc. These factors appear to support develop a positive attitude towards Mathematics in children at the centre. This paper is based on reflections of alumni two years after graduating from the centre. What factors do they still appreciate? We examine both the skills and attitudes they developed, retain and apply in their further education and life. What are the altered traits alumni retain when they transition from such centres to mainstream education?
