It was a very snowy weekend here as we welcomed our guests. There are math team students and their coaches from 6 different schools in the CEESA region:
- The International School of Helsinki
- The International School of Latvia
- The Anglo-American School of Moscow
- The International School of Prague
- The Anglo-American School of Sofia
- The International School of Krakow
We had 2 competition rounds to test the individual students' speed and problem solving in the Sprint and Target Rounds.. Then teams of 4 students put their minds together to compete in the Team Round. During the Countdown Round, the top 10 finalists went head-to-head with their math skills and as they competed for the trophy!
We had various activities over the 2 days of the competition including workshops at the science labs at Helsinki University, games, crafts, and winter play. The visiting math students and their coaches were a pleasure to get to know better. It was a great success due to many host families, staff members, and volunteer high school students who helped everything run smoothly. We look forward to our next CEESA event!
