    SOMS Summer Outreach Activities

    During Summer 2022, school students from across the country were able to participate in a series of interactive mathematical activities organised by staff and students of the School of Mathematical Sciences. These came as an extension of the UCC Mathematics Enrichment programme, which had run during January – May 2022, with 200 registered participants from secondary schools in the Munster region.  The summer activities included two main type of events:

    • Maths Camps for Junior cycle secondary school students, run by students Aaron Jacob McGee, Eva Leahy, Thomas Francis Quinlan, Lukas Boschet and David Fox, with planning and support offered by Anca Mustata.
    • Mathematics Olympiad Training camps, both onsite and offsite, in preparation for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). These were offered to students in junior and senior cycle who were the top performers in the Irish Mathematical Olympiad. UCC lecturers Anca and Andrei Mustata contributed both onsite and offsite in Norway.

    Below is a more detailed account of these events:

    Internship Programme

    The University College Cork School of Mathematical Sciences Internship Programme is a funded summer research programme intended for students in mathematics who are in their late undergraduate studies (enrolled as 2nd year, 3rd year students). This is an exciting opportunity for students who would like to gain first-hand experience of life as a researcher in the School of Mathematical Sciences at University College Cork. These internships will be titled either Boole Internship, or 1951 Internshipdepending on whether the project is mathematical, or statistical, in nature.

     4th year Financial Mathematics and Actuarial Science Award Winner

     

     

    Niamh McGrath is a 4th year Financial Mathematics and Actuarial Science student who was recently awarded a Johnson and Johnson WiSTEM2D scholarship which supports women in their careers in STEM2D disciplines. Niamh is a member of the WiSTEM society since first year and is currently the Finance Officer for the society for the academic year 2021/2022. In addition to the bursary prize Niamh will work with a Johnson and Johnson mentor honing her leadership skills in additon to internship opportunities within the company. 

    The aim of WiSTEM is to proactively empower women interested in and/or studying STEM courses to realise their full potential in college and their careers in order to tackle the under-representation of women at senior levels across STEM. 

    In conversation with Niamh "the ideas, support and passion of the WiSTEM2D programme have been a huge inspiration to me through my entire college career so it is an incredible honour to have been selected to this prestigious programme. Being a member of the WiSTEM society has provided me with a platform to promote Women in STEM2D fields throughout my studies in UCC. 

     

    The School is incredibly honoured to be part of this successful programmes with Johnson & Johnson and their support of women in pursuit of STEM2D studies and careers.
