University of Melbourne Mathematics and Statistics Workshop

The University of Melbourne School of Mathematics and Statistics would like to share an exciting opportunity for our students.

They are offering a half-day workshop for female or non-binary students in year 9 or 10. The workshop will focus on topics in mathematics and statistics beyond the school curriculum - weird and wacky topics which students have probably not encountered before.

The workshop will heavily feature hands-on activities, problem-solving, and critical thinking. It will help students develop their curiosity, creativity, communication, and collaboration - essential skills for any mathematician/statistician. The workshop will be most beneficial to students who want to meet like-minded peers and experience topics outside of the curriculum. We are not necessarily looking for high-achieving or high-ability students.

Please note the following details about the workshop:

Date: Wednesday 21 September 2022

Time: 11 AM – 3 PM (AEST)

Location: The University of Melbourne, Parkville Campus (further details to be advised)
