Mathematics visit to Exeter University

On Friday 12th June, 10 year 9 mathematicians visited Exeter University for a day to experience what a future using mathematics might hold for them. The girls were treated to various sessions introduced by female mathematicians and how they use maths in the careers. These ranged from the chief pharmacologist from Torbay Hospital, a quantity surveyor and a fascinating and thought provoking session from mathematicians from the met office in Exeter. The girls also received a talk from a first year student and a 4th year student on how they have enjoyed their time at university and the opportunities they have had. The girls were an absolute pleasure and thoroughly enjoyed their day in the exciting new campus buildings.20150612_143226
