"Ten young women from Florida were chosen to compete in the rigorous Math Prize for Girls contest at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and two of the participants hail from Buchholz High School."
"Alagappan said the test is not the focus of the weekend. But rather the test is for the girls to be surrounded by students like themselves. He said the event is unlike other competitions, as the program brings participants together. 'The idea is to promote gender equality,' he said. 'It’s not a question of talent, we just need to encourage these girls.'"
