Jobs of the Unknown - the Future of Statistics and Data Science Careers
Join the Royal Statistical Society at Appleton Tower in Edinburgh, for a fun and informative evening to learn more about careers in Statistics and Data Science.
Date: Wednesday 27 September 2023, 5pm-6pm
Location: Appleton Tower, 11 Crichton Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9LE (main foyer)
Target Audience: Secondary School S5 and S6 pupils and University Undergraduates
Event focus: Careers in both Statistics and Data Science.
We will have a diverse collection of Mystery Guests who are currently either Statisticians or Data Scientists, who are willing to be quizzed on their field of speciality. The aim of the evening is to discover what those specialities are!
Attendees will be put into small groups to circulate around the venue, meeting each Mystery Guest for up to 10 minutes. During that time, attendees can ask the Mystery Guest a series of ‘yes/no’ questions in a bid to find out what field of data it is that they work in. Any remaining time will be available for the Mystery Guest to tell the group a little about what they do in a typical day, and to answer any follow-up questions.
Refreshments will be available.
Please follow the booking link below to register your interest in attending.
This event is being run by the Edinburgh Group of the Royal Statistical Society.
