A wealth of opportunities for our young mathematicians

January was an exciting month for the mathematics department.

There was a trip to Bath University for some Fairfield girls in Years 8 and 9. The day was designed to show our students that careers in maths, science and engineering are not just for men. The day involved some talks and workshops from cutting edge mathematicians and aimed to show all of the different things that mathematicians can do at work.

Additionally, another group of students in Year 8 and 9 also participated in an engineering workshop with Airbus. The students designed gliders and three teams were selected to compete in the regional finals. This will take place in February and the students are working hard to put the finishing touches on their projects.
