Tournament of Minds


La Trobe University is a proud sponsor of Tournament of Minds. This problem solving program provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate their passion for learning and problem solving in an exciting, vibrant, and public way.

Launched in Melbourne in 1986 by Justice Michael Kirby, the event sees teams of primary and secondary school students compete in a range of creative thinking and problem-solving activities. Disciplines covered include applied technology, language literature, maths engineering, and social sciences.

Tournament of Minds is run annually all over Australia. Each year approximately 3000 students, teachers and parents descend on La Trobe University for the Victorian state finals, which is always a fantastic event.
