Attention high school juniors and seniors! Registration is now open for Moody's Mega Math Challenge. Sponsored by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, this challenge asks high school students to work in teams over the Challenge Weekend to tackle a real-world problem under time and resource constraints akin to those faced by industrial applied mathematicians.
The top six prize-winning teams receive scholarship awards ranging from $2,500 to $20,000, which are divided equally among team members and paid directly to the colleges or universities at which the winning students enroll. Semi-finalist and honorable mention winners (more than 50 awards) receive team prizes of $1,500 and $1,000, respectively.
Challenge Weekend is February 28 to March 1, 2015. Participants must be available during the Challenge Weekend. Registration is free.
