On March 12, 2016, the FAU Davie campus hosted the 19th Annual Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics Regional Competition. Students from across South Florida came to the campus with their families to take part in this event. Over 1,200 high school students representing over 43 high schools from Broward, Miami, and Palm Beach competed in the subjects of pre-calculus, statistics, geometry and calculus in the largest math competition in Florida. The event received a lot of news coverage in different media outlets, such as the Sun Sentinel or ABC Channel 10.
Broward Technology Services worked with FAU Broward Administration, as well as with other departments around campus to support the event. BTS provided different types of technology services throughout the day, including: setting up all the equipment at the main stage for the final ceremony, synchronizing computers inside the classrooms for the exams, videotaping the event, printing banners to place around campus, providing staff to cover areas of the event, among other services. Everyone who attended the event was very happy with the results, including the set-up for the closing ceremony being outdoors, which was necessary because Broward College did not provide FAU with the possibility of using the gym for the event. Photos of the event are available.
