Olympiads in Mathematics

p1080641

There is a need to continue undertaking academic excellence tests as they provide a reference point beyond our set of school points. This is of great value as knowledge the way it is growing can never be complete. It can only be at a point of time and in context and relation. By undertaking tests we get to know strengths and weaknesses alike. We can use it both ways-deepen our strength or weed our weakness.

Speaking from experience in Olympiads, I wish someone had highlighted the student’s point of view for undertaking such tests. Here are some points to help your journey through
competitions like these a little more easily.

A Rendez-vous at the Large Hadron Collidor

This photo-gallery summarizes my  enlightening experience at CERN and all the incredible knowledge I gained on the building blocks of our universe- and from the world’s most powerful microscope. For me to have walked in the same corridors that scientists such as Peter Higgs or John Ellis  have walked in; to see the command centre for the colossal Large Hadron Collidor and even to stand atop this underground feat of engineering was as honouring as it was exciting.
