NMSC 2020 CANCELLED
The Harvey Mudd Campus and the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association are cancelling the NMSC this year due to COVID19 concerns. The health and well-being of our students and community is the highest concern, and we look to next year to run the event.

MATHEMATICS COMPETITION AND PARENTS' SEMINAR
Students grades 4 to 11 will take a 25 problem exam covering questions from standard school curriculum and competition-style questions.
Parents can learn from educational leaders, STEM professionals, and university professors on how to guide their student's learning. This session will be in Korean, but the remainder of the competition is in English.
Students 4th to 8th will start lunch at 12:30 pm and students 9th to 12th will start at 1 pm. This is a great time to interact with our volunteers and ask questions. Pizza lunch is provided free to student participants, and kimbab rolls are available for purchase.
