The IPT is an excellent introduction to the world of research, where participants have to develop their own models, follow their intuition and be aware of their own limitations. However, such skill can be tested and improved only through constructive discussion with their peers. The competition itself, where the participants discuss their solutions is the key to that learning process, and gathering as many participants as possible will ensure a high variety of opinions and broad-minded discussions.
