More than a Makeover: What next for Maths Week Scotland?
Posted by Katie Oldfield
Welcome to Maths Week Scotland’s brand new website and brand new look!
Since Maths Week Scotland started in 2017 we have been amazed and delighted with the different ideas, events and sheer enthusiasm which have made it such a success. We wanted to bring all of that together in a digital home, with logos and a new look to do Maths Week Scotland proud.
It isn’t all just fancy fonts and pretty pictures though. We have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure that Maths Week Scotland 2019 is our biggest and best yet. We have got more locations, more events and more lovely people working with us than ever before.
If you are interested in hosting an event or want to get involved check out our Call For Ideas
Maths isn’t just for one week a year though. Throughout the year we will be looking for the maths which makes the world work. From algorithms for black hole images to 3D printed dresses we love finding out and sharing how maths is helping us push barriers and shape our world.
Follow us on twitter @MathsWeekScot and #MathsWeekScot for the latest news and events near you.
Maths Week Scotland 2019 will be back 30 September - 6 October.
Call for Ideas
Whether you have the kernel of a great idea or a full event planned we want to hear from you. We can support you in finding a venue, collaborators, funding and promoting. Whatever you need to get going!
Women in Maths
To celebrate women in Maths Day (12 May) we interviewed six women with maths at the core of their role and will be releasing the videos throughout May.
Our next two videos are women who work with large numbers which affect all of our lives. Kate Forbes is the Cabinet Secretary for Finance for Scotland and Esther Roughsedge is a Statistician at National Records of Scotland.
