During November, four students from our Nucleus STEM cohort competed in the National Youth Mathematics Awards. These students had earned their place at this event by taking part in both team challenges and individual challenges.
At the event, students were tasked to complete a challenge called ‘sticky dice’, where they had to consider different patterns formed when dice are placed in specific sequences. The four students performed brilliantly, they were an absolute credit to Nucleus and Northampton Academy.
We will find out how they got on later this week, so watch this space see whether we move onto the next stage of the competition in December.
If we make it to the national finals at Cambridge University, the students stand a chance of winning some fantastic prizes for themselves and for the school!
