On 23rd June the SE@K group hosted 110 school pupils in years 7 to 9 at the event Statistics Gone Wild.
The event started with an introduction, on counting animals, given by Diana, where each of the students were given animal cards representing one of the above six species. (More information on the research done on these six species is given here http://blogs.kent.ac.uk/seak/2017/05/22/statistics-gone-wild-animals/)
There were then 3 interactive sessions:
–Capture-Recapture (throwing birds in the air) given by Alex;
–Occupancy Modelling (looking for hidden penguins) given by Marina;
–Removal Modelling (digging for lizards in the sand) given by Ming.
The day ended with an interactive quiz, given by Eleni.
