SAN MARCOS – Eleven high school students from the Honors Summer Math Camp (HSMC) at Texas State University-San Marcos have been named semifinalists in the 2004 Siemens-Westinghouse Science, Math and Technology Competition.
The students worked in teams on original research projects during the summer with a faculty mentor from the Department of Mathematics. Students and mentors are:
The HSMC is a six-week residential program in mathematics whose goal is to develop talented students in mathematics. The HSMC is part of Texas Mathworks, which also sponsors Junior Summer Math Camps for younger students. Mathworks’ goal is to prepare all students to do higher level math and science.
Support for the program has been provided by the American Math Society Epsilon Fund, National Science Foundation, Siemens Foundation, Kodosky Foundation, Educational Advancement Foundation and others. Over the past four years, 35 HSMC students have been named as semi-finalists, and two teams (six students) have continued on to become national finalists (top six in the country).
