The HCT Fujairah Women’s College gave many of its students the opportunity to host their own math activity event, held recently.
‘Math Fair’ was organized and presented by first year Bachelor Degree students and formed part of an ongoing project in connection with their own math studies.
From 8am to 2pm, the HCT students offered 145 visiting students from seven government and private academies on UAE’s east coast to visit Fujairah Women’s College; and have fun trying to solve mathematical puzzles and challenges in the college’s multi-purpose hall.
First year Foundation, Diploma and BAS students from HCT-Fujairah were also invited to participate in the fun challenges.
The event highlighted HCT-Fujairah’s primary role within the community and provided an insight into college life for so many prospective students who may decide to study at HCT-Fujairah.
It also provided the bachelor students with the opportunity to assess and reflect on their own studies and achievements, as Krystyna Krol, Chair of the Bachelor Programs at HCT-Fujairah pointed out.
“The event gave our current bachelor students a great chance to put their skills and knowledge into practice,” she said.
One of the bachelor students who took part in the event, Fatmah Hassan Almulla, said:“It gave us the opportunity to build relationships with other students at the schools and challenged us to create puzzles that would be fun to try.”
The schools hosted were: St. Mary’s Catholic School Fujairah; Our Own English High School Fujairah; Fujairah Scientific Academy Fujairah; Al Shafaa Girl’s School Kalba; Murbha Girl’s School Murbha; Salma Bint Qais Girl’s School Dibba Al Hissan; and the Institute of Applied Technology (IAT) Fujairah.
Students had a chance to participate in the Team Competition and then during the second half of the Math Fair they visited individual stands and tried to solve the puzzles.
