Meet the Mathematicians

A recent feature of the British Applied Mathematics Colloquium has been the Meet the Mathematicians day and 2010 is no exception. On 7th April 2010, the Royal Society of Edinburgh will be the venue for this day of activities for older school students.  The students will be able to discover what working mathematicians do and some of the fascinating places a degree in mathematics can take them.  For more information about this and previous Meet the Mathematicians days see the web pages at
