You will be inspired by this moving film based on the remarkable life of mathematician Anand Kumar and the students of his educational program, Super 30.
As documented in local Maple Ridge author Dr. Biju Mathew’s book, Super 30, Kumar drafts 30 educationally bright yet underprivileged students into his coaching program each year – free of cost – giving them a shot at the prestigious, highly competitive, and daunting entry exam for the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).
Following light appetizers, provided by Maharaja Catering, your evening includes an onstage interview with Dr. Biju Mathew, Anand Kumar, and his brother, Pranav led by Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows News Publisher, Lisa Craik, and a screening of the film.
