Applications for 2017 are now closed
In 2017 the MAV hosted a Mathematics Camp, aimed at 2017 Year 10 students who live in regional Victoria who were deemed to be gifted and talented in the area of mathematics.
The Mathematics Camp was held in Melbourne during the first week of the Term 1 school holidays (Monday 3rd April – Friday 7th April). Places were available for 20 students.
The aim of the program is to provide a chance for students to gather with like-minded peers and explore hands-on, industry related problems. The MAV partners with four mathematical industries who provide mentoring for students to solve a contemporary real-life problem.
In addition, secondary teachers also provide on-going support. It was an engaging, practical and hands-on look at how mathematics is used to solve problems in a variety of industry fields.
The MAV provided:
- three meals per day
- accommodation (twin share)
- travel in and around Melbourne
- return travel to and from Melbourne, to the value of $50,
- all programmed activities.
Who could apply - Victorian Regions and Regional Cities
