The School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW runs an annual series of free, one-day workshops for female students finishing their high school studies (years 11 and 12). The aim of the workshop series is to encourage female students to consider mathematics as a career.
During the workshop, invited speakers will talk about their careers, and there will be sessions on the practicalities of university life, including information about our courses and degrees, applying for scholarships, programs for talented students. These will be complemented by a tour of the UNSW Kensington campus, including a visit to an undergraduate mathematics lecture. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
The Girls Do The Maths workshop is held on the third Friday of May. This year's workshop was held on Friday 19 May 2017 in the Leighton Hall, Scientia. The next Girls Do The Maths workshop will be on Friday 18 May 2018.
