UKMT Senior Team Challenge

On Wednesday 23rd November 4 students left the UTC to head for Ravenswood School in Bromley.  The students were participating in the UKMT Senior Maths Team Challenge.

When we arrived the atmosphere was very welcoming and there were refreshments available.

The team (Justin Chapman, Victor Ortene, Ross Dell and Phoebe Simpson) found the table that had the UTC flag on it.  During the first round teachers were taken for a briefing and we were directed to a different team’s table.  I had no idea how our team was doing until almost the end.  Although the students all felt they hadn’t done very well they had enjoyed the experience.  Justin commented on the fact that it was a very different atmosphere to last years challenge at Cobham Hall and was much more enjoyable.

Our students tried their best, learnt a lot and worked as a team.  The teacher on their table commented on how pleasant they had found our students and that they had enjoyed meeting them.

The team demonstrated the UTC ethos of Think, Act, Perform and have gained valuable experience.
