Maths RDP: Training in Public and Schools' Engagement
New

Thu 14 Feb 2019

Description

This workshop will offer support and practical advice for early-career researchers who wish to develop engaging and accessible presentations and activities relating their own research to the existing mathematical knowledge and understanding of school-age children and non-specialist members of the public.

Participants will have the opportunity to try out some engaging maths resources, discuss the links between school-level mathematics and mathematical research, and create their own "elevator pitch" to sum up their own research in an easy-to-understand, jargon-free way.

This workshop is particularly suitable for anyone wishing to get involved with the upcoming Cambridge Science Festival.
