Adam Spencer
Broadcaster and maths geek Adam Spencer Broadcaster and maths geek Adam Spencer's contribution to the University of Sydney has been rich and ongoing. While studying a Bachelor of Arts majoring in pure mathematics, he represented the University as one of the world's top-ranked debaters and was president of the University of Sydney Union and on the University Senate for more than a decade. He is renowned for his career as a comedian and broadcaster, presenting radio programs for the ABC's Triple J and 702 stations, and television programs Quantum and Sleek Geeks. In his trademark way Adam has woven mathematics and science into public discourse and made it accessible and intelligible, inspiring students across the country to continue their education.

The ceremony took place at Parliament House in Canberra on June 15 and Adam Spencer, media personality and Ambassador of Mathematics and Science, The University of Sydney, was the master of ceremonies. Adam Spencer, who brought to the event his characteristic humour and warmth, acknowledged the hours of hard work put in by each of the students prior to team selection. Being chosen for a team is not simply dependent on sitting for an exam. It depends on hours of practice, commitment to mentorship, focus throughout the selection schools, and the ability to blend with the other team members. Adam encouraged them in the pursuit of excellence in their field. Minister Pyne congratulated each team member as they were introduced. He commented on his government's ethos to support the Olympiad team members and to support the science subjects as a whole. He made two points in particular with regard to primary schools: to declutter the primary school curriculum and focus on mathematics and science; and, by 2017, for primary school teachers to graduate with some specialist training in mathematics, science or a language. He congratulated all the team members and wished them every success.
