Math girls receive Mr. K.J. Cath prize
Math girls Jeanine Daems and Ionica Smeets have received the Mr. K.J. Cath prize during the opening of the academic year in Leiden.
The prize has been installed in 1988 to mark the farewell of Mr. K.J. Cath as chairmain of the board of the university. The prize is worth 2,500 euro and is awarded each two years to a group or person that has been successful in bringing the university in the news in a positive way. A nice account of the event can be found at the math girls' own blog, www.wiskundemeisjes.nl.
