Tournament of Minds is a program for grade 5 and 6 students. In teams of 7, students complete a long term challenge over 6 weeks to solve an open ended problem. The problem can be selected from different areas; Arts, Social Science, STEM or Language Literature.
The teams compete against other schools, presenting their challenge to a panel of judges. Teams also undertake a spontaneous challenge on competition day where they are judged on their quick thinking, team work and creativity.
ToM aims to develop the skills of teamwork, problem solving, creativity and performance.
In 2018 BVPS entered two teams – Arts and Social Sciences.
