Maths Challenge awards at Southampton University

12th June 2014

Do you remember our social media post about three of our Year 7 students being selected as prize winners of the University of Southampton Maths Challenge 2014?

Well, after much angst and waiting at Jersey Airport due to a flight cancellation they finally set off on 4th June. Unfortunately they missed the evening buffet and maths recreation but were able to make it to the prize giving ceremony.

The three students; Ellana McAlister, Hannah Owens and Emma Noel were able to hear about what it’s like to study Mathematics as a degree from current undergraduate and PhD students, were all individually awarded their certificates, and were finally addressed by the Head of Division; Professor Graham Niblo (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/maths/about/staff/gan.page) who inspired them by speaking about the importance of building bridges in Mathematics.

A wonderful evening to celebrate a huge success – well done girls.
