Sydney will this week play host to the World Education Games, an initiative by United Nations children's charity Unicef.
Approximately 6 million students around the world have registered to take part in the games, the world's largest education event.
The 3-day games consists of World Literacy (March 5), Maths (March 6) and Science (March 7) Days where students between the ages of 4 and 18 complete challenges at different difficulty levels to earn points for themselves and their schools.
Last year's World Education Games champion was Oliver Papillo, a student of Balwyn Primary School in Victoria. The nine-year-old answered 1.25 maths questions a second to take the top spot.
He will again compete against children from about 30,000 schools in 236 countries, including more than 2 million Australian students from over 6,200 schools.
