Big Noise

Simon singh's Enigma machine simulator

No, not one of our first year lectures, but the Bexley Big Noise STEM Careers Fair. This was an event for year 9 and 10 students in Bexley to promote careers in science, engineering, technology and maths. Kevin and I went with two of our students (thanks Ameli and James) , and we had a wonderful time, demonstrating code-breaking, mathematical modelling and actuarial mathematics, to lively and enthusiastic mathematicians of the future.

Yes: we had two students staffing the maths stands and others generally helping with the event. We wouldn't be able to take part in events like this without our wonderful, reliable, hard-working student ambassadors!
