# GDST Junior Maths Conference

*By Daisy Self, Year 6*

On 9th October, six Year 6 girls went to the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford for the GDST Junior Maths Conference.

Once we arrived, we had a talk about data and numbers as the theme of the day was “data.” After that we were split into groups and we made different videos about data from a survey called “If the GDST were a village.“

Then during lunch break, we had a tour of the Institute where we saw where everyone works and socialises.

Next we did a quiz, which allowed us to work with girls from 20 other GDST schools and our team won a medal for collaboration. Finally, as we were leaving, we met a girl called Edwina, who went to a GDST school and is now studying for a PHD.

We all had lots of fun and we enjoyed learning about statistics.

Thank you to the GDST for this great opportunity!
