The mission of the Philadelphia Engineering and Math Challenge (EMC) is to enhance the teaching and learning of problem solving and communication in our city’s public schools through a series of school-based collaborative practice sessions and competitive events.

Sponsored by the Math Forum at NCTM
and Penn State Undergraduate Admissions


Unique to the EMC

• the mathematics informs every part of the competition
• collaboration, communication, and problem solving are as important to succeeding as math knowledge
• events engage students with different interests and skill sets and do so in ways that teachers can take back to their classrooms
