Details

Operational Research (OR) is the science and art of using maths to solve problems and improve decision making. It’s ‘maths in the real world’, with applications from government, retail and sports to healthcare, finance and event planning. This session features a quick introduction to OR and the OR Society, followed by an interactive demonstration of our popular Lego Furniture Factory workshop, a fun, hands-on explanation of how OR and maths are used in real life. Finally, attendees will be told where to find all of our free teaching and volunteering resources, and how to access the support we offer teachers and volunteers.

Attendees will need:
6 rectangular/2x4 Lego bricks
8 square/2x2 Lego bricks
Worksheet to be provided/pen and paper
