Warwick's Slice of Science Schools Day

On the 13th March Warwick welcomed 91 female-identifying year 9 students from the local area to a day of interactive workshops, talks and engagement with STEM staff and students.

Statistics offered four workshops in which we estimated animal abundance, explored biased sampling and learnt about regression towards the mean. Along the way we encountered some famous statisticians from the past, like Florence Nightingale who was not only a nurse but also an accomplished statistician who used visualisation effectively to communicate the insights she had gained from her data. The workshops were supported by our fantastic team of Statistics Widening Participation Ambassadors who are all current undergraduate students in the department.

Workshops were also offered by the Department of Computer Science, the Mathematics Institute and the Women in Cyber from the Warwick Manufacturing Group.
