Join the Modeling the Future Challenge
The Institute of Competition Sciences and The Actuarial Foundation are hosting the Modeling the Future Challenge (MTFC), a competition for high school students combining math-modeling, data-analysis, and risk-management into one exciting research competition. This project-based competition teaches students to use critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, and analytical skills to help make real-world decisions for companies, organizations, or government agencies. Through the challenge, students have a chance to tap into a $60,000 scholarship purse. Registration for the 2023-24 MTFC opens in the fall; however, there are three opportunities available now:
1. Apply for the Actuarial Process Educator Training Program: https://www.mtfchallenge.org/educator-training-program/
Available to educators at any formal or informal education organization in the US who teach high school mathematics or computer science. This training program offers educators a $300 stipend and 15 hours of professional development to learn how to use actuarial science, risk analysis, and mathematical modeling in their classes. Apply today for the teacher training spring program. Spaces are limited.
2. Express interest in an On-Campus Student Workshop with a University Partner this fall: https://www.mtfchallenge.org/on-campus/
High school groups, clubs, and classes are invited to join our local university partners across the country for an interactive on-campus event. Express interest in a fall workshop to secure your group’s spot in the all-expenses-paid field trip to a local university where your students will be guided through an MTFC scenario, receive a tour of the campus, and learn from university faculty, students, and actuarial professionals. Limited school grants are available to cover all expenses for participation in a workshop.
