M3 Challenge finalists meet with Mayor Bloomberg

After half a day spent squaring off with their peers on the best mathematical models for plastic accumulation and recycling in Moody’s Mega Math Challenge 2013, and winning their share of $115,000, the top six teams in this year’s contest had another prize waiting for them: a meeting with Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

During a tour of New York City Hall following the event, the mayor met with the finalists, their coaches and parents, as well as organizers from the M3 Challenge. He spoke to them about the importance of applied mathematics and STEM education and careers, as well as of New York City as an excellent place for young people to live and work. View the photos!
