A group of middle school girls in Charlottesville spent Saturday solving math problems.
The Village School hosted the second annual GEM - or Girls Excelling in Math - tournament Saturday.
The competition featured an individual event and a group competition.
The students worked together to discuss strategies and solutions to different math problems.
"They're all speaking up and sharing and collaborating, so it's really neat to get the middle school girls together in this type of event and talking about the math and feel confident because they are so great at math so they can kind of show that and share it with each other," said Lisa Schropp, Village School math teacher.
Girls from the Village School, Convenant School, and Walker Upper Elementary took part in the competition.
Winners were recognized at an awards ceremony at the end of the tournament.
