Mathematical Talks and Activities for Schools
The School of Mathematics at UEA is pleased to offer a range of talks and activities suitable for school and college students of different year groups. Our mathematicians are happy to visit schools to give these talks, and we can also welcome groups to UEA. Full details...
UEA Open Days
UEA welcomes all visitors to its three annual Open Days in late June, July and mid September. At each open Day, special events promote our degree programmes in Mathematics. There is a talk about what it is like to study mathematics at degree level, and opportunities to chat informally with lecturers and current students. For further details, see the University Open Days page.
The University runs annual residential summer schools for students in year 12 in Mathematics, Engineering, and a number of other subjects. Participants will learn about university life, take part in interactive sessions, and learn about current research. See the UEA Summer Schools page for more information.
UEA hosts annual events for Year 10 and Year 12 students.
We hold a "Maths at University Day" in June or July for Year 12 students who may be thinking of a university degree application in Mathematics. We also hold an "Explore Maths" day in March or April for Year 10 students. These days include a lecture and group exercises in solving mathematical problems.

The UEA School of Mathematics hosts an annual Inter-Schools Maths Quizzes for Year 8 pupils. Local schools are each invited to enter a team of four pupils, who then compete over several rounds answering both team and individual questions. For further information, please contact Mark Cooker.
Science in Norwich Day
Recently, a group of PhD students from the School of Mathematics has run stalls at the annual Science in Norwich Day held at the Forum in Norwich. They provided a number of demonstrations of fluid mechanics to primary school children, and also explained about research in mathematics and its relevance in the real world.
