North Dakota Talent Search
The Department of Mathematics at NDSU hosts an annual North Dakota Mathematics Talent Search. The talent search aims to stimulate students through problem-solving, to identify high-school students in North Dakota and surrounding areas with a talent for solving mathematical problems, to reward these students and their teachers for their efforts, and to encourage these students to pursue a major in the mathematical sciences or engineering at NDSU.
