Love Actuary

Online 30th Sep 5.30pm-6.30pm Free
Love Actuary

We hope you can join us for this interactive maths workshop for S4-S6 students, presented by Heriot-Watt University and SCHOLAR!

We'll explore how you can apply maths in the real world, in areas of finance and beyond, looking at the career of an actuary in managing risk to protect people and their money. You'll have the chance to try some typical calculations underlying an actuary's work, and we'll have a look at the risks involved in real life financial problems facing the world today.

How much would you charge a top sportsman for insurance against the danger of injury? How can we help prepare financially to protect against climate change? It's all in a day's work for an actuary!

Date & Time

Wednesday 30th September 5.30pm-6.30pm
