Young mathematicians test their knowledge
More than 350 competitors from 27 schools from Grant County and the rest of North Central Washington competed in this sort-of math Olympics Feb. 28 at Clovis Point Intermediate School in East Wenatchee.
Grant PUD staffers, management — and a management spouse — take a leading role in making Math is Cool events happen around the region. Student teams fan out to designated rooms to compete in Mental Math, Individual Test, Team Test, math relay and other events. They reconvene in the school gym for an awards ceremony. Participating Grant County schools were: Ancient Lakes, Monument, Mountain View and Pioneer from Quincy; George Elementary School; Soap Lake Elementary School; and St. Rose of Lima and Parkway School of Ephrata.
