  • What is Math Hackathon?

    The Math Hackathon is a global event that gives kids from all over the world the chance to prove how they can use math to solve our world's greatest problems. The competition will be held virtually. You can join by yourself as an individual and work on a project solo, or join as a group and work collaboratively with others.

  • How does Math Hackathon work?

    You are given a problem that must be solved using your math skills within the 48 hours of allotted time. You will be able to submit your work via an online portal where your work will then be evaluated and participants will be ranked.

  • How do Groups work?

    Participants can work individually or in a group of up to 4 members. There should not be a difference of more than 2 years in their ages (e.g. A 12-year old can be a group member to a 14-year old, but not to a 15-year old).

  • How do I submit my work?

    Once the competition opens, you will be able to access a portal which will allow you to submit your answer.

  • How much does it cost?

    It is free!

  • What are the eligibility requirements?

    All students Grade 6-12 (ages 11-17) from anywhere in the world, any math skill level, and all members in a group must be registered to take a part in it.
