Future proofing Australia’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) credentials, Sydney has secured a global stage of the competitive World Scholar’s Cup.
Taking over the world class International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) from 15 to 20 August 2019, the World Scholar’s Cup – Global Round will attract over 1,600 high school students from 82 countries who will debate, collaborate and compete in team and individual challenges. The winners from the global rounds then face off later in the year at Yale University, USA for the ‘Tournament of Champions’
Themed ‘A world on the Margins’, the 2019 global competition aims to create new international networks of thought leaders, to challenge the next generation and champion education as a way to break down barriers.
Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning the Hon. Sarah Mitchell MP said the World Scholars Cup is a wonderful way to motivate students of all backgrounds.
“This is a great event for students to demonstrate their existing strengths, but also discover new ones in science, technology, art, music and history,” Ms Mitchell said.
“The World Scholar’s Cup encourages students to participate in authentic and challenging learning experiences and creates an environment that fosters creativity to help them navigate complex global issues.
