For Maths Week Scotland we are running a series of talks from STEM Ambassadors to show how the maths students learn today can be used in the world of work.

Cameron Williamson is a Mechanical Engineer who has worked on submarines and aircraft carriers and now puts his skills to use overcoming technology challenges in vertical farming.

Find out how maths has played a role in Camerons career and the opportunities it has provided plus how he puts it to use creating indoor eco systems.

The talk will be followed by the opportunity for participants to ask questions.

This free talk is suitable for upper primary and throughout secondary years across all subjects as well as for practitioner who want to develop there own knowledge, available to all UK settings.
