AMS: scienceXart school competition

This year, to mark the 100th anniversary of the International Mathematical Union, the Australian Academy of Science’s National Committee for Mathematical Sciences hosted scienceXart: spot the maths, a photographic competition for school students of all ages. A collaboration with reSolve and supported by the Australian Mathematical Society and the Statistical Society of Australia, this initiative was part of the Academy’s celebration of their Centennial in 2020.

It is with great pleasure that we announce Andre, a year 7 AMS student, was shortlisted from hundreds of applications from around Australia in the Year 7 to 9 category for his “column graph” picture of Surfers Paradise.

Well done to Andre and all those who participated. To see the winners and shortlisted pictures follow this link:
