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 in the third week of May. This year's workshop will be held on Wednesday 16 May 2018 in the Leighton Hall, Scientia. This workshop is FREE.
