Tournament Results 2020

Thank you to the schools that entered a team or teams in this year’s Tournament of Minds Program. There were over 150 teams throughout Victoria participating in the special Super Challenge. A different type of challenge for the special circumstances we find ourselves. This year teams not only had to solve “Quo Vadis”, the Super Challenge, but also had to contend with the difficulties of the lockdown restrictions – and every team, and their teachers and supporters too, should be so proud of their fine efforts in solving and overcoming both those complex challenges.

The judges were often astounded at the amazingly creative presentations the teams submitted, and highly impressed by the use of ICT. All teams managed to put together a video presentation where the seven team members were mostly working in isolation. Incredible work!
