Driving Excellence in Mathematics
Huge congratulations to David, Harry, Chris and Thomas, who have beaten teams from 13 countries to win fifth place in the World Final of the Jaguar Maths in Motion Challenge!
More than 102,000 students, from around the world, took part during the course of the past year, competing to achieve the fastest time with a virtual car created using science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills. They compete against each other in a series of Grands Prix type races on some of the world’s most famous circuits, throughout the year in the hope of getting to the finals!
The final was held at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, where 30 teams competed in two age categories. Teams had just 90 minutes ahead of the race to make calculations and racing decisions, including the amount of fuel required and the angles of the track bends.
Brian Richardson, Challenge Organiser said, "The Jaguar Maths in Motion Challenge shows students there are good reasons to study maths at school and that you can have fun doing it. It also shows that teamwork is an essential skill in the workplace - whever you live in the world."
This is an incredible achievement by these young Warwick Junior School boys. The gauntlet is well and truly thrown down for next year!
