Students from all over Australia (and one participant from Kolkata) converged on the sunny University of Newcastle for AMSI’s Summer School in the Mathematical Sciences.
Students stayed on campus for the four-week program, taking two of the eight subjects on offer, meeting employers at the careers afternoon and finding out about new research at specialist lectures.
The social side was also a big hit with students competing in a trivia night, "Murray Elder's Famous Bushwalk" and a beach party (despite the minor hiccup of a shark sighting).
