Gunda Engineers Participate in MATHCOUNTS

20160213_120500On Saturday, February 13th, two of our engineers Shashider Velugati and Raghu Veturi participated in MATHCOUNTS.  The MATHCOUNTS Competition Series is the only competition program of its kind, with live, in-person events in all 50 states, as well as U.S. territories and schools worldwide through the U.S. Department of Defense and State Department. The Competition Series is ideal for students who have a talent and passion for math who need to be challenged. Students will engage in exciting, “bee-style” contests in which they will compete against and alongside other bright, motivated students. At the local, state and national level, students win hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes every year.

There were several rounds of math questions for which students answered in a timed environment.  “It was amazing to see how kids from 6th through 8th grade performed on these tests.  It was good to see people from different engineering disciplines volunteer for this event, comments Mr. Veturi.”  Volunteers included: Civil Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Petroleum Engineers, University Professors, College Students, Retired Engineers, and Parents. Mr. Veturi noted tha t “this event was a perfect opportunity for us to get involved with a group of people who work hard to promote the importance of Mathematics.”  We thank both Shashi and Raghu for spending their Saturday supporting such a great cause!
