We've got funding!
We're pleased to announce that the Maths Helpdesk has received funding from the Vice Provost for Research and we're looking forward to another year's problem solving.
New plans for 2017/18
We're expanding our activities to include:
- Fortnightly drop-in sessions, where you can continue to work on collaborations too
- Collaborative research hackathons on research problems from across College
We need your help
In order to do this, we need your help. We want to recruit a larger team to run the helpdesk, including representatives from all the major research areas. Your role would be simple and hopefully enjoyable: come to the drop-in sessions regularly and answer questions, and moderate questions on your subject area on the helpdesk solver area to ensure they're getting responded to. You can also get involved in organising and delivering hackathons and crash courses, but there's no obligation to do so if you don't want to.
Are you stuck with some maths in your research?
Come to the Maths Helpdesk Monthly Drop-in Event!
Our team of solvers will be there to help you with your maths problem.
Enjoy free lunch with fellow researchers from inside and outside your department.
When: Thursday, 3rd November, 12-1pm
Where: Huxley Building, Level 1, Room 139
We will be hosting these drop-in events fortnightly during term time, so if you can’t make this one we encourage to try make the next one on the 7th of December. See you there!
Thanks for the interesting questions and answers from the attendees at our February drop-in session!
Here are some pictures of the events:
