Mathematics-Physics Competition

On Wednesday 20 March we had a team participate in the Vector V8 Challenge. John Chen, Prashant Prasad, Aaron Lew and Aimee Lew were tested on their ability to solve complex problems fast and under time pressure, think on their feet, be creative, collaborate and communicate and mostly to put theoretical maths and physics into practical use – it was a collab supreme! It was our first time there and the team are through to the finals. They came second out of 12 teams and it was nerve wracking because they changed places between first, second and third all night and in the last 30 seconds as the large wall timer ran down, they held their nerve, made one final design modification, called the judge and … they overtook Strathallan to come second!
