Hands-on maths competitions
Our one of a kind hands-on maths competition is an unforgettable experience for up to 100 students. Teams of four will test their creativity playing unique hands-on games, complete challenging tasks, meet new people, attempt mind bending puzzles and compete for amazing prizes.
The day is structured for teachers to enjoy too, with a scoring system designed so you spend very little time checking answers and grading solutions. Teachers can even join in, and often do, as they don’t want to miss out on all the fun.
