Sonia Kovalesky Day

Sonia Kovalesky Day
WMS had the opportunity again this year to send four middle school girls to UCM to the Sonia Kovalevsky Mathematics and Computer Science Day on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.

In the morning, students attended two workshops on the application of mathematics and computer science in real world settings. The presentations were followed by a problem solving contest with teams comprised of one to three students from each school. While students were involved in these activities, mathematics teachers also attend two workshops. 

The afternoon consisted of a panel discussion hosted by women working in a variety of positions which require a mathematics or computer science background.  The day ended with the presentation of participation awards, prizes for the problem solving contest, and door prizes.

The girls representing WMS were Mary Franklin, Arianna Brown, Elise Lewis and Jolin Wu.  Sponsors who attended were Cyndi Allen and Andrea Nelson.
The team of Elise Lewis and Jolin Wu placed second in the middle school problem solving competition.
