The North West Science Network are running their annual

Maths Spring workshop! The workshop is aimed at state school students who are considering a career in science, particularly those thinking of studying a science degree in higher education.

Interactive and entertaining hands-on exercises will be used to show how important maths is across the whole spectrum of science, with the exercises covering topics in biology, chemistry and physics. It’s also a great way to spend a day with some university researchers!

There will also be a chance for parents/carers to meet with the workshop leaders to discuss careers in science and transitions to higher education.

The requirement for students is a grade 6 in GCSE maths, and they should be studying mainly science A-levels.

The first day is on 29th April and will be held in person at Blackburn College.

The second day is on 30th April and will be held in person at Xaverian College, Manchester.

Students do not need to attend both, as the days content will be repeated on both days.
