OVERVIEW

 

"The competition aims to showcase to the whole world the practical applications of mathematics. The pupils defended their projects with model structures, PowerPoint presentations, together with excellent subject knowledge. It was a total commitment from the pupils." - Arinze Edward Oranye (CEO/MD and Benefactor)

 

The competition started in February 2019. The first round was a written examination and 45 pupils were successful and invited to take part in the second round which was also a written examination.
