More than 3,300 girls and boys from Years 5 to 11 will participate in the NSW da Vinci Decathlon 2016 at Knox Grammar next week.
The Decathlon, which was created by Knox Grammar in 2005, celebrates the academic gifts of young people by providing a stimulating and challenging competition run in the spirit of an Olympic Decathlon.
Students compete in teams of eight across 10 disciplines including engineering, mathematics, code breaking, art and poetry, science and English.
What began as a small local competition, with public and private schools invited to the experience, has grown to be a national and global phenomenon, involving many thousands of students across Australia.
Across Australia, more than 10,000 young people will compete in da Vinci Decathlon events throughout 2016.
