European Abakus Olympiad 2020

12 Dec 2020

This year the European Abakus Olympiad was conducted online and some of the students at the British School of Sofia - Campus Plovdiv participated. They took the mental math tests during the weekend and the results will be announced in the end of December.

We’ve already covered why BSS Plovdiv offers mental math lessons as a part of the curriculum: it boosts not only math skills, but abstract thinking, concentration and a plethora of other skills. In December 2020 the Olympiad was conducted online and this made it even more user friendly for our pupils. At the British School of Sofia the students start programming from the first grade. And these IT skills make them even more competitive during the remotely conducted Olympiad.

Wish the participants luck and hold your fingers crossed!
