Descripción

Registration: http://matematika-txokoa.eus/en/summercourses/

This course organised by Matematika-txokoa is for students aged 15-18 with the aim to promote science via the mathematics in them.

It is aimed at students interested in science in general; not only in mathematics but also in physics, biology, chemistry, engineering... You will all be able to enjoy discovering new concepts. If you weren't aware that mathematics is hiding in every science, this is a great opportunity to discover these connections and to learn about plenty of interesting applications: encryption, molecular biology, electrical engineering, nanotechnology...

It will last 10 days, 4 hours per day in a seminar/workshop format as well as exploring with some experiments.

This course organised by Matematika-txokoa is for students aged 15-18 with the aim to promote science via the mathematics in them.

It is aimed at students interested in science in general; not only in mathematics but also in physics, biology, chemistry, engineering... You will all be able to enjoy discovering new concepts. If you weren't aware that mathematics is hiding in every science, this is a great opportunity to discover these connections and to learn about plenty of interesting applications: encryption, molecular biology, electrical engineering, nanotechnology...

 

We want the students to “play” with science, and for that, we will guide them to immerse into a creation process through some workshops.

The course will be given by a group of mathematicians and physicists of the University of Oxford and UPV/EHU. It will last 10 days, 4 hours per day in a seminar/workshop format: 9-11am and 11.45am-1.45pm. Furthermore, we will give each participant the opportunity to be supervised to do a little project.

Additionally, we have invited some internationally recognised scientific researchers who will come to talk to you about their work and their experience.
