Last Saturday, twenty-five of our Skinner North 7th and 8th graders participated in the annual QED Math Symposium at Walter Payton College Prep. Our students, who had been working hard on their math-related projects over the past few months, had the opportunity to present and defend their projects in front of judges at the symposium. Our school was well presented, with a strong showing among our participants and all were recognized for their contributions.
Congrats to the following students for their hard work on their projects and for representing Skinner North so well in this year’s QED:
