All library programs are run on a drop-in basis, and registration is not required. We do ask students to sign in each time, and to provide their name, grade, and school. This is done electronically for Kingston, so please sign in using this link at least once this year.
We participated in the middle school contest (20 questions in 1 hour for teams of up to 6 students). We also responded to a friendly challenge from the "associated adults" (parents, advisors, and friends) of the Albany Area Math Circle. Everyone who took part enjoyed some wonderful mathematical challenges! For more information about the Purple Comet! Competition click here.
