Region 8 school hosts math fair

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Jonesboro Math and Science Magnet School held its fourth annual math fair.

The event brought together children from all the elementary schools across the Jonesboro School District to compete in different activities. Competitions were set up for kids to make educated guesses, test math facts and solve problems with the use of interactive technology. Math and Science Magnet Coordinator Suzanne McDermott says it presents math skills in a hands-on way.

"All of our dreams are built on math and science so we bring all of our students together to provided a friendly competition for them to let them know that math is fun and also just bring the spirit of our school together," says McDermott.

Over two hundred children participated, which McDermott says is the largest turn out they've ever had.
