Mathematics in Space – Poster Competition 2014 / 15

Knowledge of mathematics is essential when we try to understand the origins of the universe; determine the distance to the nearest star; predict the orbit of a comet or the date of a solar eclipse; discover new planets; calculate the most efficient way to get a spacecraft to Mars, et cetera.

Maths in Space 2014We want you to produce an A4 poster that illustrates the use of mathematics in some aspect of space that you find exciting. The best posters from students aged 11-13, 14-16 and 17-19 will win an Android tablet, and we’ll also put your posters on the Maths Careers website for everyone to see! There’ll also be five certificates for each age group for those posters that don’t win but which really impress the judges. These will be put on the Maths Careers website as well!

Make sure you read the rules before taking part in the competition. Closing date for all entries is 19th January, 2015. Entries received after that date will not be displayed or judged.

Please include your name, age, name of school, school address and an email address where you can be contacted. If you are home schooled please send us your name, age, name of parent/guardian, their address and an email address where you can be contacted.
