“Take a Girl Child to Work" Day is a national yearly event aimed at exposing girls at secondary school level to a variety of career options. The Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics traditionally invites a number of girls from high schools in Pretoria to enjoy a hands-on experience of academic life on this day. The girls are informed of career options in mathematics while spending a day in the university environment, experiencing all of its facets.
The Department extends an invitation to contact Dr Quay van der Hoff (012 - 420 2785) or Mrs Ezanda Dreyer (012 - 420 3575) to take part in this event.
