"Are You Smarter Than a Mathlete?" quiz show coming to the Summit

Oct 29, 2018

For the lunchtime plenary, we'll be doing something a little different this year! You will be entertained by a live quiz-bowl style math competition, where 7th and 8th grade Mathletes® are paired with influencers and technology industry leaders in a single elimination bracket tournament, presented by Dell and MATHCOUNTS.

This “Are You Smarter than a Mathlete?” event will introduce you to the fun ways MATHCOUNTS aims to help build confidence and improve attitudes towards math and problem solving, helping students embrace challenges and expand their academic and career opportunities in the future.

Competitions like this have been held across the country including the 2018 SXSW in Austin, Texas. Get a feel for the competion
