Over 650 students attended the two-day event.

Under the guidance of 11 dedicated TAS faculty coaches, students from diverse backgrounds converged at TAS to engage in rigorous debates, thoughtful discussions, and dynamic problem-solving exercises. The participants from Grades 5 to 12 filled various roles, including country delegates, UN officials, and press members.
