Schools Event 2016
The Careers and Academic Liaison Committee (CALC) are planning a Schools Event, to be hosted at the University of Reading next summer. Students aged 14-18 will be selected from schools in SE England to take part in a number of interactive and fun statistics-related workshops, which aim to complement and extend the statistics concepts being taught at KS4 and KS5 levels. The workshops aim to show the students how statistics is used in industry and other fields, provide some insights into some of the interesting careers that are available using mathematics and statistics, and help them to discover new career options beyond the traditional applications, e.g. finance, research and teaching.
To help with the planning of the event, the team will also be running a pilot event at a local school in Surrey in the autumn, to get feedback from students and teachers on some of the workshops, and help with the planning of the main event.
Final dates to be confirmed
