Any undergraduate student (with any major) in teams of up to 3 members can participate in this contest. This contest, and in general any form of mathematical modeling, tests your creativity in applying ideas from one or many parts of mathematics to an open-ended real-world problem. If this sounds interesting to you, then get in touch with me and we can discuss how you can get involved in Mathematical modeling contests and so much more.
