Francesca Iezzi (Edinburgh)

Maths is Fun: Outreach Efforts at the University of Edinburgh

Mathematics is beautiful, but arguably one of the least popular subjects with both children and adults. How can we best share our passion for Maths with the public? How can we make people around us enthusiastic about Maths?

During this seminar I will discuss my experience as Mathematics Outreach Manager at the University of Edinburgh and give an overview of our outreach program. I will describe how UG and PG students can get involved, through volunteering, paid internships or credit-bearing projects.

Time permitting, there will also be a chance to get hands on and have fun with some of our most popular resources.
