SIMCC Online Contests

DrCT

DrCT aims to cultivate students’ creativity, logical reasoning ability, algorithmic and computational thinking skills. By solving our contest tasks and using Strawbees with design thinking methodology to develop a robotic solution for a problem statement, we will facilitate a deeper understanding of the world around the learner and enable them to solve everyday problems by leveraging the power of computers and information technology. Students will pick up the finer points of programming, solution focus and action oriented which is not merely writing a piece of code but involves useful algorithmic techniques and problem-solving skills.

Bebras

BEBRAS is an international initiative aiming to promote Informatics (Computer Science, or Computing) and computational thinking among school students at all ages. Participants are usually supervised by teachers who may integrate the BEBRAS challenge in their teaching activities. The challenge is performed at schools using computers or mobile devices.

3MT International is an individual tournament meant for middle school students and below. Winners of Bronze awards and above are selected to compete in the MMT Global Finals in August 2023. Students not from the US or Canada should participate in the international version of the contest managed exclusively by SIMCC and their Country Council Partners (CCPs).

MMT is unique in its fun, distinctive formats (like our bingo round) and team-based structure. We started amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, hoping to broaden the reach of mathematics during challenging times, and have stuck with our values of collaboration, love for mathematics, and fun ever since. Now, we are expanding globally with SIMCC and Scholastic Trust Singapore as our Global Organizers outside of the U.S.

Berkeley Math Tournament

The Berkeley Math Tournament Asia (BMT) is a UC Berkeley student-led organization that aims to spread mathematics and the spirit of mathematical competition globally by presenting students with interesting, original, hand-crafted problems. As of 2021, we are one of the largest student-run math competitions on the West Coast with over 2000 contestants.

Stanford Math Tournament

The Stanford Math Tournament (SMT) is an annual student-run math competition for high school students held online. SMT aims to encourage interest in math by providing students from around the world an opportunity to work on fun and challenging problems and to meet other students interested in math.
