Calcex 2019 Calcex

On Tuesday 24 September, Awatapu College hosted the Manawatu Calcex Competition. The competition is similar to Mathex but is based on calculus problems and aimed at Year 13 students. Along with the Awatapu College team, we also had teams from PNBHS, PNGHS, Paraparaumu College, and a team made from the Puhoro STEM Academy students from PNBHS and PNGHS. Well done to everyone involved. Click here to read the full Stuff article. Photo credit David Unwin (Stuff).
