3nd European Championship in Mental Calculation

Basel, May 9th-12th 2018

for children and adolescents ages 8-17

Welcome to Basel!


After taking place in Zurich just two years ago, the European Championship in Mental Calculation is coming back to Switzerland already, in Basel this time around.

Two years ago,40  young men and women aged 10-17 participated in the championship 2016 in Lucerne. How many will there be at the 2018 one? The Elternverein Hochbegabter Kinder (EHK, roughly translates to Parents’ Association of Gifted Children) has once again conferred with Dr. Dr. Gert Mittring. The 11-time world champion in mental calculation will lead the workshops and thus prepare the children optimally for the competition. 
Apart from the competition and workshops, there will also be interesting secondary events to visit.

Last but not least, participants will have the opportunity to meet like-minded math enthusiasts and engage in friendships across borders! 

New world record?

Dr. Dr. Gert Mittring will try to set a new world record.  ETH Zurich will prepare, follow and check the attempt.

Dr. Dr. Gert Mittring will take the 89xxx root out of a  1 million digit number. His current world record stands at 4 minutes and 41 seconds, set in Oberhausen during the Phantastika on 2. September 2017! Tickets available now!
