Explore Horizons is once again looking for the best math students in North Texas.
The tutoring and enrichment center with locations throughout the DFW Metroplex kicks off its annual Young Mathematicians’ Award in early October. The competition, now in its third year, is designed to stretch the most gifted young math brains in DFW and identify the math stars of tomorrow.
In October, participating schools from around the Metroplex will select four top mathematicians from grades 4-6 to compete in a regional competition that will take place in mid-November. The winning team from each region will then advance to the finals in early December.
“Math, whether we love it or hate it, is a fundamental part of everyday life,” said Belinda Southgate, Head of U.S. Marketing for Explore Horizons. “It’s a global language and underpins many essential life skills. At Explore Horizons our aim is to make math fun and encourage gifted and talented young students to learn vital problem solving skills to use in high school, college and even future careers in STEM fields.”
Educators interested in the Young Mathematicians' Awards and the free math workshops provided for local schools can contact their nearest Explore Horizons center for more information. Additionally, parents can contact their nearest Explore Horizons center to inquire about signing their child up for a free Enhanced Math course, which practices the skills that are tested in the Young Mathematicians' Awards.
