Mathletes prove MATHCOUNTS

Math was cool – at least for a few hours during the MATHCOUNTS Lehigh Valley Regional Competition held at Lower Macungie Middle School Feb. 9.

The Saturday event had a bunch of smart kids out of bed and away from their televisions and social media while being excited about math.

According to Kevin Campbell of the Lehigh Valley Chapter Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers, the sponsor of the event, “Math is the foundation to being a good engineer” therefore, he continued, “since engineers make all the good things that make life easier, all engineers go to heaven.”
