Virtual mental calculation workshop with Gert Mittring for 9 to 19 year-olds (in English and German)

12 to 14 May 2021

Applications closed!

We invite you to participate in a virtual mental calculation workshop with the multiple mental calculation world champion Gert Mittring which will take place from 12 to 14 May 2020. 

The actual European Junior Championship , which was scheduled to take place in  Basel at this time, unfortunately had to be postponed until 2022  due to the COVID-19  situation. By participating in this workshop you can prepare yourself for the 2022 championship. You can get to know other enthusiastic mental calculators from all over Europe  and have a lot of fun.

Since we want to ensure an active participation in the workshop, the number of participants is limited. For those who had already registered for the European Championship 2021, participation is guaranteed.   Participation in the workshops is free of charge.

The workshop will take place via Zoom.  The participants will be split into  three groups according to their  level (see in the registration! ). The groups  will meet with Gert Mittring and other mental calculation experts in separate virtual rooms. 

At the beginning of the  day,  Gert Mittring gives  an introduction to the theme of the day for all. At the end of the day, a invited  speaker talks about a  topical  topic,  which is closely linked to the world of mathematics and mental calculation.
