Tournament of Minds

Braeview Year 6 / 7 students have the opportunity each year to participate in Tournament of Minds. This year we have two teams who work collaboratively on a long term challenge.

The teams present their challenge at Tournament Day at Flinders University in September.

Teams are able to select from one of four challenges – Language, Literature, Maths Engineering, Social Science or Applied Technology. Each of these challenges requires the team to:

  • Use  critical and creative thinking
  • Work constructively as a team
  • Clearly communicate a solution
  • Consider alternative viewpoints – social, ethical and cultural
  • Use problem solving and reasoning
  • Be self-motivated

The Australian Curriculum  includes seven General Capabilities and teams are able to exhibit skills and strategies within these capabilities.
