Today marks the beginning of the 2nd annual Collingwood STEM Cup Challenge (click here) – a dynamic competition where students and fans leverage their maths and stats skills to calculate player salaries for Collingwood’s 2018 season. The competition is based on the career of Dominic Milesi, the ‘Capologist’ for the Collingwood Football Club, who manages national recruiting and player contract negotiations for the team. Dominic’s key responsibilities include determining salary figures for Collingwood players using his STEM education and skills.
