Mar 21 @ 9:45 am – 2:00 pm
Have you ever wondered what studying physics at university is like? Join us as an undergraduate student for the day! You’ll attend a lecture, solve challenging problems during a workshop and complete an undergraduate-level lab session in the afternoon! This is a great opportunity for Year 12 students studying both Maths and Physics to experience university life and see what it’s like to study in higher education. Students must have permission from their teachers to attend the event. You must apply for a place on the Taster Day. Deadline to apply will be Friday 3 March 2018.

Are large databases good for you... @ University of Leeds
Mar 21 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm
The big increase in computing power over recent years has made it possible to routinely record large volumes of information about our daily lives (and especially our health). Statistics is the essential tool for making sense of the huge quantities of data available. There are many exciting challenges – often the data that are missing or poorly recorded are at least as informative as the data that are present. The real strength of such databases comes when they are linked together to see the bigger picture, but how do we do this, and should we worry that our privacy is being invaded? In this talk we look at these issues through examples ranging from goals in world cup football to survival following a heart attack.
