Abstract: This minisymposium will introduce the newly instituted international contest in modeling for high school students - International Mathematical Modeling Challenge (IM2C or IMMC) whose co-founders and co-organizers are Consortium for Mathematics and its Application (COMAP) and NeoUnion ESC Organization. The meaning and significance of mathematical modeling education for fostering students innovation competencies will be addressed in response to the global trend in STEM education. Award presentation to local teams will be held during the minisymposium. A team of students and their teacher advisor who won the Outstanding Prize in the first Annual IM2C 2015 will make presentation. Review in depth of the contest problem Movie Scheduling and commentary on solution papers by awarded teams will be lectured. Hands-on workshop on mathematical modeling teaching and learning will be offered in the minisymposium.
