    20 March 2018: THE BEAUTIFUL IMPACT OF MATHEMATICS IN SOCIETY (BIMS) II

    On Tuesday the 20th of March 2018 the second edition of the conference

    THE BEAUTIFUL IMPACT OF MATHEMATICS IN SOCIETY (BIMS) II

    is being held on the VUB campus. This time the focus lies on science communication, in mathematics in particular.

    Are you looking for tips to bring science in a comprehensible way during your classes, or present it to a wide audience and the press/media? What are the secrets of an engaging presentation? During our morning program you will learn the tricks of the trade!

    Are you a teacher looking for content for your mathematics courses or STEM projects? Then you’ll get plenty of interesting cases in the afternoon!

    We end our day program with our Keynote speaker Prof. Dr. Ionica Smeets. She is the head of the Leiden Science Communication and Society department and is delighted to train students with the master’s program of the same name. In her science communication research she investigates the gap between experts and the general public. What goes wrong when those groups communicate with each other? And what can scientists do to improve this process?
