The beauty of maths in generating success
Come and join Aberdeen Science Centre for a free evening exploring the beauty of maths and how it can be used to improve performance.
About this event:
Join us at Aberdeen Science Centre on Thursday 29th September 2022 at 6.30pm to explore the beauty of maths. We are delighted to have Bob Lyons visiting the centre to share his insight into data analysis and sport performance, with time at the end for questions and answers.
Refreshments will be provided, and you will also have the opportunity to explore our 60+ exhibits and take part in different activities on our exhibition floor, investigating the real life applications of statistics.
Meet the speaker:
Bob Lyons has over 30 years experience of elite sport performance coaching and he will be delivering a talk on how he uses statistics and data analysis to improve the performance of his athletes. He will discuss how data is collected and presented to promote athletic improvement - this will hopefully involve an element of audience participation! Bob will also explore how this elite performance development can be used in everyday lives.
This event is reccommended for those age 14+ and is supported by Maths Week Scotland.
