The Ordinarydust / Genius Master’s Mental Calculation Contest, was created to enable children improve their thinking speed, learn short and direct calculation method, understand some mathematics formulas and develop a positive attitude towards life.
“We believe this will not only help and motivate them to complete school well but also transform them into change agents and credible leaders.
“We believe that activated champions change the world and we have an opportunity to use mental competitions to shape our country’s future, a new tomorrow,” he said.
The assembly pastor, Pastor Olayemi, emphasized his passion for the competition and encouraged the organisers to organise more of such competitions in the church.
Olayemi, who said he has personally gained a lot from the mental calculation contest, further said he would not allow the children in the church to fall behind in the mission to gain extraordinary mental capacity which the contest is encouraging.
