Mombasa Maths Contest

Over 3,000 students will meet in Mombasa today for the annual Brookside Maths Contest.

The Brookside Mathlete will be held at the Allidina Visram High School.

Yesterday, Brookside Dairy marketing manager Peter Wasonga said the event will bring together schools from the Coast.

“We want to promote academic excellence by demystifying maths as a hard subject,” Wasonga said in a statement.

He said this year’s contests had been organised in eight counties, and will see the overall national winners get scholarship at Strathmore University in Nairobi.

“The best student in maths shall have earned the scholarship out of hard work,” Wasonga said.
