An exciting new academic focused co-curricular is coming to Waverley. Previously known as ‘Tournament of Minds’, BrainWaves will be offering a range of team-based challenges, designed to challenge and take classroom learning beyond the curriculum, and into the realm of co-curricular, competitive, project-based events.
Student-centred and flexible, the program encourages students to participate in their choice of competitions** taking place across Terms 2 and 3, and can include but is not limited to:
- Tournament of Minds
- Future Problem Solving
- EdTech Challenge
- Archibull Prize
The goal is to provide students with adequate time and resources to enrich their academic and creative gifts and talents, and provide a mentoring environment to delve into topics or projects that may be limited, due to time constraints and/or school commitments.
Students are also encouraged to ‘bring their own idea’ if there is an event or competition they’d like to participate in.
**Entry into competitions will depend on student numbers and competition structures, as some competitions are grade based, whereas others are mixed age groups
