OR in Schools (ORiS) promotes operational research (OR) in schools, colleges and universities to raise awareness of the importance of its real world applications and highlight potential careers.

We need OR people like YOU to get involved to help us raise the profile of operational research by telling students why it's a great career. A full list of events can be seen on our blog, with different locations across the country, different age groups and different timings etc. 

Below is a list of the type of activities we get involved in and the things we need volunteers for:

  • Careers Talk - this involves talking to a group of school, college or university students about your experience. This is formal(ish) event and you are likely to have somewhere between 10 minutes to 40 minutes to talk about what you do. We have PPT templates, example talks and assistance to help you prepare for these events.
  • Maths workshop - This is where you would run an interactive exercise, demonstrating a real life application of OR (which has been simplified for student use). We have all the resources for this – including interactive exercises, complete instructions and worksheets.
  • Careers fairs - these involve attending a local school or university and being an exhibitor. The idea here is to man a stand and chat to interested students about what you do / where you work / how you got into OR. We will provide you with all the equipment such as tablecloth, banners, flyers, pens and keyrings etc.
  • Big Bang Fairs - A cross between a careers fair and maths workshops. You will be exhibiting and talking to students but also providing them with interactive exercises to have a go out. Always great fun! We provide you with all materials for this.


If you've got an hour (or more) to give, get in touch. Email and we'll add you to our mailing list.
