Get excited for Maths Week Ireland with Katie Mullan
Although school days may look a little different this term, it hasn’t stopped preparations for the 15th Maths Week Ireland going ahead. Set to take place from October 10-18, Maths Week promotes and develops a positive attitude towards maths in young people and a wider awareness of the importance of maths. Last year over 400,000 people across the island of Ireland registered their participation for Maths Week and one of the ambassadors for this year is none other than Ireland’s Hockey Captain and Coleraine woman, Katie Mullan.
