Women in Maths Research

Manchester

Overview

This day is open to all Year 10 and 12 maths students but we would particularly like to encourage female students who might be considering studying Mathematics or a STEM subject at University. There will be a choice of workshops given by research mathematicians at various career stages on a range of topics which last year included: Financial Mathematics, Fractals, Quantum Information, History of Mathematics, Model Theory and Mathematical Epidemiology.

There is a limit of 10 students per school with no more than 6 from Year 10  (there may be more spaces available depending on interest).
