Year 9 & 10 WISDOM: Women in Science Doing Outstanding Maths - An event at Newcastle University

A common misconception is that studying Mathematics is for boys. In this event we hope to dispel that myth and show you (and your Mum, Grandma, Auntie, Dad or other interested guardian) that there are strong successful women who use mathematics in a variety of interesting ways every day in their careers.

Refreshments will be provided.

On Wednesday 5 June 2019 from 16:30-19:30 Newcastle University are holding an event aimed at girls and their Mum (Gran, Auntie, Dad or other interested guardian).

The aims of the event are to:

·         Showcase some of the careers that women with a mathematical background have gone into

·         Stimulate the curiosity of year 9/10 girls and promote the study of maths at A-level and beyond

Attendees will include:

·         Academics from the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics

·         Current undergraduate students in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics.

·         Women from industry and other subject areas within the University who have a mathematical background or who use mathematics & statistics in the workplace
