Registration begins for II edition of the Mathematical Oracle Story Contest | News

Registration has already started for the II edition of the “Mathematical Oracle Story Contest”, a competition that encourages creativity, communication skills, the proper use of digital resources and interest in the science of numbers among schoolchildren.

This contest is aimed at schoolchildren who like to read, write or narrate; since the competition is inspired by the Mathematical Oracle app, a Peruvian app that today is part of the school curricula of Costa Rica, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama and Venezuela

The participants of the contest will be able to present their stories and be the new authors of this narrative saga of characters based on the life of great mathematicians of history.

María José Caro, writer and head of the Educared educational community of the Telefónica Foundation, reported that the contest is aimed at public and private school students between 10 and 15 years of age, who will have to create a new character for the saga of stories “Mathematical Oracle”, which already contains six stories, a spin off and a digital book.

The contest has two categories: written stories and audio stories (A new creative format that has gained strength after confinement by the Covid-19 pandemic). Caro stressed that the story contest will award the first five places in each category with tablets and laptops.
