A new virtual educational game tournament is offering high schoolers a chance to have fun while learning about Africa’s culture, history and geography during this period of confinement around the world. The game tournament, Edu-X Quiz, is designed and organized by Edu-X Services LLC.
Edu-X Services LLC is a startup based in Atlanta, Georgia. They recruit international students from Africa and assist them with college admission in the USA and Canada. Students benefit from a mentoring program offered by Edu-X Team to facilitate their integration in the USA/Canada, and to help them engage in extracurricular activities and ensure their academic success.
The first round of Edu-X Quiz was held on April 18, 2020. Twenty-eight high schoolers out of hundred thirty-first applicants were selected to participate based on their performance. Edu-X’s partners – Lycée Kodonso, Groupe Scolaire La Lumière, Lycée Moctar Mamadou Ba – had five of their best students represent their schools. Many high achievers were also selected from the pool of applications, from France, Togo, Ivory Coast and Mali.
Some of the strategic questions were designed by Dr. Boniface Diarra, a well known professor at the University of Montreal in Canada.
After the first round some participants have left a note regarding how they benefit from Edu-X Quiz.
Zahara Zahabi, 11th grader at the high school “Lycée Français Liberté de Bamako”, says “[…]This game allows me to meet other students around the world, but also I realize that every day is a new opportunity to learn. I love questions about general cultures, foreign policies and geography (especially about Europe). Thanks to Edu-X Quiz, I realize that I should learn and develop more interest in my continent, Africa. Its history, its geography, its cultural heritage and many others. It’s a pleasure and a unique life experience to participate in Edu-X Quiz. I hope to be among the finalists and why not the winner.”
