About this Event

The School of Information Technology invites year 10 students to form a team and participate in a mathematics competition at the Deakin Geelong WP Campus.

This will be an exciting opportunity to demonstrate your mathematical prowess and to pit your skills against students from different schools. Which school will be the mathematical ‘Hogwart’? Who will be the ‘Harry Potter’ of mathematics? Bring your mathematical wands and be ready to do battle against the ‘Voldemort’ of mathematical problems.
