Over 80 students participated in the 9th Hostos STEM Olympiad, and NYS Math League Contest held on November 19th and November 21st during the 2019 Hostos Science Week. Three new disciplines were part of this year's edition: Introduction to General Chemistry (CHE 105-110), Differential Equations (MAT 360), and Linear Algebra with Vector Analysis (MAT 320).
“The Hostos STEM Olympiad aims to expand students’ horizons in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We want to encourage them to face challenges by thinking outside the box, to increase their engagement in STEM fields, and ultimately to assist them on their journey to becoming great human beings and professionals who contribute to society,” said Professor Rodríguez. “The competition atmosphere was inspiring. We need to keep embarking on these kinds of initiatives to nurture excellence on our STEM students and programs.”
The award ceremony took on December 5th in the Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos. The winners of the 9th Hostos STEM Olympiad and NYS Math League Contest are:
