ATOMS INFINITY NUMERACY CHALLENGE is a numeracy event targeted at young students of IV to IX standard across Tamil Nadu & Puducherry. It is designed to recreationally test participants' numeracy abilities in a competitive yet collaborative, recreational and relaxed setting. ATOMS' INFINITY NUMERACY CHALLENGE will take place in successive years in the month of October. The event will be open to all students, it is not meant to be restrictive to individuals that do not reach a certain minimum level. It promotes students of all levels to participate, be confident and apply their numeracy skills.
The first iteration of the Infinity Event was organised in March 2017 under the name "Infinity Numeracy Challenge Season 1" at UK.
Open to all students, between 4th to 9th standards in two levels, Junior and Senior level, this challenge will evaluate the students based on their logic and reasoning abilities. The questions would sound trivial but would encourage them to think critically, push them to open up their imagination, resolve problems, take decisions, and reason logically. Each student will receive a detailed report on their abilities, rather than a score, which will assess their numeracy skills for them. From over 2 lakh students across both the levels, we will shortlist candidates on merit and the selected students will be put through phase II in Chennai.
From over 2 lakh students across Tamil Nadu and Puducherry 400 students will be shortlisted for the final round in Chennai. This will be hosted as a reality show. These students will be put through three rounds, and the top 16 students will be selected to go on a 3-days all-paid internship with NASA worth ₹2.5 lakh for free, and they would be a part of an engaging project the scientists. Others students will be given attractive prizes from our sponsors and along with a metric certificate.
