Event description

Description

Think maths is important but not sure how you could promote it?

Do you want to help inspire school students but not sure where to start?

The Operational Research Society and the STEM Ambassador Hub West England are pleased to offer volunteer training on Thursday 15th November for anyone interested in running workshops to engage children in maths. This could be in a school, college or university. No prior experience is necessary - just enthusiasm to show young people how important maths and Operational Research is!

Who we are:

· The Operational Research Society is a professional body for those working in Operational Research (OR). We offer training to volunteers to deliver fun activities in school that show how maths and OR can be used in the 'real world' - the application of mathematical methods to tackle the real-life problems associated with decision-making in businesses and other enterprises that you are probably very familiar with!

This training session will include:

· OR Society Volunteers training - including a brief overview of who we are, training to run fun activities (lego, board games, or something else fun!) and of course the chance to network with others. We promise it will be lots of fun, and will equip you with the skills you need to run these workshops.

Who can attend?

· Anyone! No prior experience necessary.
