Pupils in meet­ing of minds

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

AF­TER a per­for­mance to be proud of, a team of Molesworth Pri­mary School stu­dents have re­turned from the Aus­tralasian fi­nals of the Tour­na­ment of Minds com­pe­ti­tion in Ade­laide.

About 700 stu­dents from across Aus­tralia, Thai­land, Hong Kong and New Zealand took part in the com­pe­ti­tion.

As part of the com­pe­ti­tion, the stu­dents were shut in a room for three hours where they had to solve an un­seen prob­lem to do with words and their mean­ings.

They also had to com­plete a spon­ta­neous chal­lenge and a short prob­lem that they had to solve within five min­utes.

The stu­dents then did a pre­sen­ta­tion in front of a large au­di­ence.
