Evie Skene, a fifth grade student at Fortville Elementary School, has been accepted into the Ball State Institute for the Gifted in Mathematics (nicknamed "BIG M") one-week program in June. Skene and 27 others will work in teams exploring connections between mathematics and science, number patterns and algebraic reasoning, and brainteasers of all kinds, as well as recreational activities.
Skene was selected from over 150 applications from mathematically gifted 5th and 6th grade Indiana students. To be selected for the 2017 BIG M program is quite an honor. Congratulations Evie and way to represent Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation!
