The Big Bang North West 2018: Statistics Ambassadors!
We are overjoyed that the Statistics Ambassadors from the University of Liverpool will be returning to The Big Bang North West 2018!
The ‘Statistics Ambassadors’ are a team of students and academics from the Department of Biostatistics, The Farr Institute and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Liverpool.
When they’re not working out new statistical methods to answer clinical questions they can be found in local schools engaging the next generation of statisticians via hands-on activities!
Here’s what they’ll be bringing to this year’s event:
‘Our gang of meerkats are at Customs – only some will be passed as safe to enter. Help us use the power of statistics to work out who makes it!’
Can You Beat the Bolt?
‘Discover if you are faster than Usain Bolt and other famous athletes using only a ruler and some awesome statistical know-how!’
‘Statistics and magic collide in this amazing floor-based activity involving a whole pack of over-size playing cards!’
How Many Penguins?
‘Come & meet our waddle of penguins and in the process learn how we can use their poo to estimate how many live in Antarctica!’
“We are delighted to be returning to The Big Bang North West in 2018 – It’s an awesome day out which we enjoy just as much as the pupils who visit the event. Bring on the statistical soft toys, and the tiny dice!” – Dr Laura Bonnett, NIHR Post-Doctoral Fellow, Liverpool University.
We can’t wait to see the Statistics Ambassadors at The Big Bang North West, they have so many secrets to share and their stand is always a big hit. Be sure to ask them ‘how can I always win?’
