– What is Stormathon?

Stormathon offers you the opportunity to:

  • Practice your innovation and problem-solving abilities
  • Work with a real case
  • Expand your network
  • Identify and make use of your specific strengths
  • Collaborate with other students outside of your field or program
  • Compete against other teams for the best solution and the chance to win a price

During 12 intense hours, you will work in a team with students from different programs and with varied competencies. You get your case in the morning and at the end of the day, you will present it in front of a jury.

At your disposal are:

  • Your own room for idea generation and all the material that you will need for a creative process.
  • Access to coaching and method support
  • Direct contact with representatives from your client
  • Inspirational lectures

Of course, no need to stress about food. We will have you covered! Lunch and dinner will be served, as well as coffee and snacks all day long.
