Local middle school students trying to win money for college are asking for the public’s help.
The students have entered the Math Video Challenge and their video is hovering around 64 out of 200 entries.
According to the program’s website, “formerly known as the ‘Reel Math Challenge,’ the ‘Math Video Challenge’ is designed to get students excited about math while giving them the opportunity to hone their creativity and communication skills.”
Teams of four created a video that teaches the solution to a real math program and demonstrates how math is used in real life.
All members of the winning team will receive a $1,000 scholarship to use at the college or university of his or her choice.
