Mark Raspopov Wins Global Math Olympiad Scholarship
Brain Power student Mark Raspopov has won a Global Math Olympiad Scholarship (GMOS)--he is the first Canadian winner--and helped to bring Singapore International Mastery Challenge Center (SIMCC) contests to Canada!
What a change-maker -- and what a great new opportunity that is now available, thanks to Mark, for young Canadian math enthusiasts! After many gentle nudges, he was able to convince SIMCC to bring two Global Math Olympiads to Canada.
Mark has won two Gold Medals for two Global Math Olympiads (SASMO and SIMOC) provided by the SIMCC, and he has been accepted into the International Junior Honour Society (IJHS)!
