O.R. in Schools – See Us At …

Every year we travel up and down the country visiting schools, colleges and universities to give students a taste of Operational Research (O.R.). Whilst we hold our own annual careers fair in Birmingham every year  (http://www.theorsociety.com/Pages/CareersOpenDay/CareersOpenDay.aspx), we also visit other universities to attend their career fairs and large scale events such as The Big Bang Fair, New Scientist Live and Greenwich Maths Festival. Read on for a list of where we visit and when – and come say hi if we’re near you!!
