It was a really fun session with students required to take part in a ‘bubble sort’ exercise (which involved chocolate for the winners!) and a practical session carrying out a 4 month Pro Bono O.R. project “Modelling the UK Dog Population” in 40 minutes.
The workshop also covered:
- An introduction to O.R. and The OR Society
- Career pathways into O.R. and how to gain experience, including getting involved with the O.R. in Schools initiative.
- An introduction to the Pro Bono O.R. scheme including some example case studies.
We’ve had great feedback from the session and look forward to working with Birkbeck again in the future.
