Training for the MSC Inter-school Contests Ongoing

The free training for participating schools in the MSC Web Design Contest and MSC Speed Math Contest  is currently ongoing every Saturday, morning for web design and afternoon for speed math.

Ever since MSC started these contests, the free trainings were also offered since not many pupils are knowledgeable about web design and very few knows and uses math techniques which make computing easier and faster.

For this year, the trainor for web design is MSC graphic artist Diana Lynne G. Luna, MS High School class 2005 , MSC Computer echnology Course graduate 2007.  The speed math contest participants are trained by no less than Mr. Virgilio Y. Prudente or more popularly known as “Sir Ike”.  He is the founder of MSC, creator of MATH-Inic, and the author of 25 Math Short Cuts.

The trainings are conducted several weeks before the anniversary of MSC.  The contests revolve around the thrust of MSC – Math, Science and Computing.  Only the web design and speed math contests have trainings, the other contests that do not involve training are the Scavenger Hunt and the Math-Sci Quiz Show.
