Math Prize for Girls competition helps to close the gender gap in mathematics
September 27, 2018
"Advantage Testing’s goal is to bring girls with strong math skills together to encourage their talent, build a network lasting into college and beyond, and inspire them to mentor girl math students. 'We want to give these girls the opportunity to thrive in an environment where their sense of belonging is never in question,' said Alagappan."
"'The Math Prize is far more than a prestigious math competition,' said Maria De Vuono-Homberg, associate director for the Math Prize for Girls. 'It is a weekend-long event which encourages the girls who attend to get to know each other and forge connections for their future in college, industry, and research.'"
