The School of Mathematics and Physics engages in a number of outreach activities of various types. This includes schools liaison work, public events, competitions, residential summer schools, and many more ad-hoc activities. We post about these activities on our blog and you can find out more information below.
Every year within the School we run a competition for secondary school students. This involves students answering a set of problems in the style of Maths and Physics Olympiads. Winners of the competition receive prizes and these are awarded at a celebratory on-campus event.
Several of our staff have delivered, and are available to deliver, lectures or workshops in secondary schools or colleges. There are a range of Maths or Physics Masterclasses available, but we are open to suggestions from your school or college. For more information contact Dr Matthew Booth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Lincoln, we host an annual Maths and Physics summer school organised by the EDT (Engineering Development Trust). This special opportunity is available to students from all across the country and takes place in the summer holidays. The aim is to allow students to get a taste of student life in Lincoln whilst experiencing university-level mathematics and physics learning.
As part of British Science Week, at Lincoln, we held Maths and Physics week. This week was dedicated to celebrating the wide range of exciting opportunities a Maths or Physics degree can open up. Catch up on these sessions to find out more about what we do in the School of Maths and Physics, our research, and what makes Lincoln a great place to learn.
