UoEm 2023 High School Students` Maths Contest

The University of Embu plans to hold a Mathematics Contest and Capacity Building Workshop for Secondary School students. The workshop is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 25th March, 2023 at the University grounds as from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The theme of the workshop is “The Ultimate Mathematical Experience: Stimulating Enthusiasm and Love for Mathematics”.

We believe that this will be an excellent opportunity for the students to be exposed to national competitions, which focus on problem solving and higher-order thinking skills. In addition to the Mathematics Contest, the students will also receive a motivational and career talk, a tour of the University, and a sensitization on subject requirements for available University programmes.

Participating schools are required to identify a team of twenty (20) students; ten from Form 3 and ten from Form 4 to take part in the proposed contest. Should you wish to bring an additional team(s), a request can be made through 0110089905 or uoemmathscontest@embuni.ac.ke.

The registration fee per team of ten (10) participating students will be KES. 1,500 only. The registration fee is payable through the official University of Embu bank account (Kenya Commercial Bank, Embu Branch – 1141890933). Further, individual schools will be expected to cater for transport and lunch for their respective students.

In order to make the necessary logistical arrangements, kindly confirm attendance by Friday, 17th March 2023 through 0110089905 or uoemmathscontest@embuni.ac.ke. In case you require further clarification on what is required please feel free to contact us directly via the contacts given above.

We look forward to a fruitful engagement.
