UNICEF World Education Games
Tyrrell’s Project Explore students recently competed in the UNICEF World Education Games involving 5.5 million students from 200 countries and territories around the world. The students did a great job answering questions in all three contests – Spelling, Math, and Science.
On Friday, we learned that one of our 8th graders, Matthew Stojanov placed in the top 100 in the science competition. Matthew finished in 33rd place out of 1.57 million students participating in the science competition. He will receive the Ruby Award from the United Nations.
We also learned that one of our Project Explore 8th grade teams came in 12th overall in the World Science Day competition! They will receive the Gold Award from the United Nations.
Participating students will also be donating $236 to UNICEF to purchase one School-In-A-Box, enough supplies to educate 80 children in remote areas of the globe for an entire year.
