Congratulations to all the 2017 primary school maths prize winners

Tara Indigo from Blackheath Public School is one of the 254 NSW primary school students from 87 schools who received a maths prize from the UNSW School of Civil & Environmental Engineering this year.

Tara says she's proud of herself for getting the award. She says her maths skills have improved a lot this year and that she really enjoys maths.

Our congratulations go to Tara and to all the young winners.

The UNSW Civil and Environmental Engineering Prize in Mathematics is an initiative of the School’s Industry Advisory Committee, to help address the problem of falling numbers in students undertaking higher level maths and science in high school years. We wanted to find a way of communicating the practical value of maths and science to students prior to their high school years.

The key objective of the prize - to the value of $100 - is to encourage a lifelong interest in mathematics, as one of the key requirements for a rewarding, fulfilling and socially useful engineering career.  Selection criteria emphasize applications and creativity as well as class projects and test results.

For a full list of 2017 winners and participating schools see below.
