HCT-Fujairah recently gave the opportunity for many of its students to hold their very own math activity event.
‘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 students offered visiting students from government and private academies on the east coast of the UAE the opportunity 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 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.
Skills into Practice
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. She said, "The event gave our current bachelor students a great chance to put their skills and knowledge into practice."
One of the bachelor students that 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."
HCT-Fujairah had 7 schools (145 secondary students) participate in the fair and also the Foundations, Diploma and upper BAS students who visited.
