Rising Stars Prize 2015
On Wednesday 24th June the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon housed the Jaguar Maths in Motion Challenge. The competition has been going for 15 years, but the 2015 event was the first ever World Final, open to primary and secondary schools from around the globe. Organiser Brian Richardson was thrilled to see so many schools from around the UK attending, and expressed surprise and delight that teams had come from as far as China and Australia to participate, with Harrow International School in Beijing and Kingston Primary School from Perth Australia flying in to take part (the latter accompanied by a kangaroo mascot).
