The programme will however, have a special focus on women participants. The aim is to encourage and support large scale participation of women.

In a period of one week, this programme will aim to provide young students a broader exposure to reasoning through logical steps to achieve critical mathematical thinking, apart from problem solving skills in the areas specified.
