Maths Easter Workshop
Saturday 14th April, Cheshire College South and West, Crewe, CW2 8AB
Sunday 15th April, Xaverian College, Manchester, M14 5RB.
We are pleased to confirm details, and open applications for, the 2018 North West Science Network Maths Easter Workshops. The event will return twice (once in Crewe and once in Manchester) and is open to students currently in Year 12 students from state schools in the North West of England
The aim of the workshops, delivered by academics from the University of Oxford, is to demonstrate the importance of mathematics as a key tool across the entire spectrum of science. Both days will consist of lectures, hands-on mathematical exercises working in small groups, and a presentation exercise.
Academic requirements for attendance at the workshop are a minimum of a grade 6 at GCSE (or equivalent) Maths, and the studying of at least two scientific subjects at A Level (or equivalent). ‘Scientific subjects’ includes Maths!
Applications are open until April 5th. Should you have any difficulty completing the form, please contact Suzie Giles (Outreach Officer at Corpus Christi College, Oxford) on firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applicants will be notified as to the outcome of their application no later than April 9th, at which point more detailed attendance information will be sent to successful applicants. It should be noted that application for these workshops, successful or otherwise, has absolutely no bearing on any future application via UCAS to study at the University of Oxford or any other university.
