Students compete for scholarships at Math, Science & Engineering triathlon

The 12th Annual Math, Science & Engineering Academic Triathlon was held last Friday in Math and Sciences Building, Room 104.

Students enrolled at Saddleback College were invited to come answer a set of approximately 250 questions. Students who didn’t major in science and/or math could take the test.

A total of $2,800 in scholarship money was offered. This amount would be given in varying amounts to students who reached specific award levels. For reasons of fairness, students who have won previous triathlons at the $400 award level were not allowed to compete again.

Beginning at 2 p.m., students were given until 5 p.m. to complete the test with biology instructor Dr. Jane Horlings moderating.

The winners of the test have yet to be announced.
