Choose your discipline, prepare your team, create your response

Tournament of Minds (TOM) brings together teams from schools all over Australia to compete in late August every year. Participation is in teams of six to seven, who prepare a creative response to a challenge, working together over a period of about five weeks to prepare and practice. Teams can compete in applied technology, language and literature, mathematics and engineering, and social sciences.

In addition to this long-term challenge, students also are given a spontaneous challenge on the day that requires teamwork and lateral thinking.​ TOM is a fun, team-building activity and many students enjoy taking part.
