UDC Hosting Training for Pan African Math and Ibero-America Math Olympiads

UDC Hosting Training for Pan African Math and Ibero-America Math Olympiads

UDC is currently hosting 20 students from all over the US, including Puerto Rico in preparation for the Pan African Math Olympiad, to be held in Tunisia in September, and the Ibero-America Math Olympiad, to be held in Bolivia in October. This is the first time students have been recruited and competitively selected for these competitions.

This is the student's one and only training camp, and UDC is proud to be the host venue. This opportunity allows students to train in the national capital, visit their congressional representatives, and much more. The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is administering the effort, which is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

The leaders/organizers are Drs. Florence Fasanelli, from AAAS and Dr. Mark Saul, from New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. There are also other instructors working with the students.
