Since 1950, Society for Science & the Public has provided a stage for the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the world's premier STEM competition. Each year, millions of the best and brightest students from around the globe compete in science fairs and vie for the 1,800 spots and $5 million in prizes at the ISEF. The upcoming ISEF will take place from May 10 - 15, 2020 in Anaheim, California. For more information, please visit the ISEF homepage.

The Mu Alpha Theta Award is given to the most challenging, thorough, and creative investigation of a problem involving mathematics accessible to high school students. Components of the investigation often include mathematical proof, mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, visualization, simulation, and approximation. Drs. Terry Herdman and Tom Tosch judged submissions on behalf of Mu Alpha Theta at the 2019 ISEF. **From left to right: **Dr. Tom Tosch (Judge); Alexander Zhang, Second Award of $1,000; Siddarth Ijju, Second Award of $1,000; Anne DeForge, First Award of $1,500; AnaMaria Perez, First Award of $1,500; and Rinni Bhansali, Second Award of $1,000.

AreteLabs is offering two fun, FREE opportunities to compete with other chapters or groups around your community in a digital space. Check out the two options below (one starting March 30th!), and if you would like to participate, contact information can be found here.

2 Options:

1. We are planning to run a single elimination bracket tournament starting the week of March 30, if there is enough interest. Weekly competition lasting 30 mins/week. Play any day/time during the week. Even if your team loses in the bracket, it can continue playing for a full 6 weeks. Offered at 3 levels: ES (3-5th), MS (6-8th), and HS (9-12th). Follow this link (and scroll down) for a general idea.

2. Create your own intra- or inter-team matches with our high quality 3-12th content, for any time you want your kids to play, as often as you prefer. Super flexible.

The Core Competition Experience:

MathWorks Math Modeling (M3) Challenge is an Internet-based applied math competition for high school juniors and seniors known for inspiring them to pursue STEM majors and careers. Working in teams of three to five, participants solve an open-ended, math-modeling problem focused on a realistic issue – in 14 hours. Extra credit awards are available to teams that employ technical computing/code in their solutions. The contest, organized by Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and sponsored by leading software developer MathWorks, is free and open to all U.S. students and will award top teams this year with $100,000 in scholarships toward the pursuit of higher education. M3 Challenge has given more than $1.4 million in scholarships to date and has been listed as an approved contest by the National Association of Secondary School Principals since 2010.

Challenge weekend is set for February 28 - March 2, 2020. Registration is open here through Friday, February 21, at 4 p.m. EST sharp!

Complete details, rules, and practice problems, as well as other resources to help students learn math modeling, technical computing, and how to prepare for the Challenge can be found here. If you would like more information about the Challenge or posters to distribute to your organizations or colleagues, please send a request with due date and shipping address to m3challenge@siam.org.

The American Regions Mathematics League (ARML) offers a two-test Power Contest to be worked on by a team at the students' high school. The Power Contest provides a group problem solving situation similar to the power question found at the annual ARML competition. The 2019-2020 ARML Power Contest windows are October 26 - November 10, 2019 and Feburary 22 - March 9, 2020. For questions or additional information, please visit the ARML Power Contest homepage.
