NCE is again joined by drainage specialist ACO Technologies to run the CleverClogs competition.
ACO market development director Peter Ridgway explains why: 'The response to last year's CleverClogs was overwhelming - as was the talent that was so evidently on show every week during all three terms.
'Maths, as a foundation for innovative design, is at the heart of our business and one of the key reasons why we are keen to continue to support the programme.
'This year's CleverClogs will be a shorter, high-impact competition which, we hope, will be just as mentally spectacular as last year. Good luck.'
