Cornell Mathematical Contest in Modeling is an annual university-wide competition for undergraduates (from freshmen to seniors). It attracts students from many majors/departments. Each team of 3 undergraduates works on an open-ended ("real-world") problem, builds a mathematical model, obtains a solution based on it, and writes a detailed paper (proving the feasibility of the team's model and solution) - all this in the space of less than 4 days! This info session gives more details and also practice with working through a problem.
