Initially held in Bratislava in 1998, Náboj has become an annual international mathematics competition. Students at the JKU Linz have been able actively take part since 2016.
The competition involves students working in teams of up to five people. The goal is to solve as many tasks as possible in 120 minutes. There are two categories: The junior category for 9th and 10th graders and the senior category (no school level restriction).
The competition does not require any special preparation beforehand or prior experience in competitions. The tasks demand a certain amount of thinking, imagination, and teamwork.
