Attendee Contributed Sessions

Sessions marked with * above will include attendee-contributed content, and we'd like you to get involved. Sessions include:

  • Lightning Talks session - 5-minute talks showcasing maths outreach projects and activities. If you have worked on a maths outreach project, ongoing or short-term, you think people would be interested to hear about, come and share the details. Application form (closing date 1st July)
  • Exemplar maths activity workshops - Showcasing a selection of maths workshops. If you run a workshop you're particularly pleased with, or want to improve, we'll be running multiple sessions in parallel for attendees to watch and give feedback on. Application form (closing date 1st July)
  • Demo showcase - to encourage more maths outreach practitioners to include live demos in their practice, we're organising a TMiP Demo Day on 19th June, supported by the Royal Institution, during the summer to develop and improve some live stage demos, hosted by science demo veteran Greg Foot. This session will showcase the results of that day, and hopefully give attendees some inspiration and let them see how demos can be used.
