"This is a fabulous Maths tool.  It supports classroom teaching and it is invaluable as an STEM enrichment activity."

“I went to the Investment Challenge hoping to learn about investments and the pressurized atmosphere of the stock exchange. I ended up having one of the best evenings since I've been at university. It was a frantic and testing event, but it was absolutely thrilling!”
