MAV has been successful in again receiving funding to run the Maths camp in 2023. The 2023 camp will be a face-to-face event and will be held in the week of Monday 26th June to Friday 30th June. Student applications are NOW OPEN.
In 2023 the MAV popular and successful Mathematics Camp for Year 10 Regional students will be a face to face event. The camp will be held in the CBD in the week of Monday 26th - Fri 30th June.
The mathematics camp brings together high potential rural and regional students to experience what a career in some of the most exciting organisations in the STEM industry look like.
Twenty-four Year 10 regional students will be selected via an application process to participate in a Mathematics Camp to be held during the first week of the Term 2 school holidays.
The aim of the program is to provide a chance for students to gather, with like-minded peers and work in small groups to explore hands-on, industry problems. Students will work in a team to complete a real-world mathematics project.
The MAV has partnered with four mathematical industries. Each industry will provide students with a project investigation.
Students receive daily mentoring by mathematicians and industry representatives.
Students will be expected to develop their project presentation and solution as a team, developing 21st century skills including communication, problem solving and creative and critical thinking.
The open-ended projects stretch the application of mathematics past students’ usual experience and challenge them to come up with innovative solutions.
The week will culminate in students presenting their project findings in the presence of the industry partners, invited guests and parents.
Additionally, secondary teachers also provide on-going support. Experience has shown the camp is engaging and practical and provides a hands-on look at how mathematics is used to solve problems in a variety of industry fields.
The camp will be at NO cost to students and MAV will provide:
- accommodation and all meals
- all programmed activities, including:
- access to presentations from Industry representatives
- access to mentors who will work with students, including Mathematicians from tertiary sector
- social opportunities to engage and collaborate with each other
Who can apply - Students from Regional Victoria. Victorian Regions and Regional Cities.
2023 CAMP DATES: Monday 26th June - Friday 30th June
