Big Bang North West 2019: Win every time with the Statistics Ambassadors!
We are excited to announce that the Statistics Ambassadors will be returning to The Big Bang North West 2019!
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 fun hands-on activities!
Here’s what they’ll be bringing to this year’s event:
- 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!
- How Random Are You?!
Play our game with dazzling dice to determine just how random you are!
- 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!
- How to Always Win!
Snakes and ladders, but not as you know it…
“We are delighted to be returning to The Big Bang North West in 2019 – 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?’
