Girls' Day - Mathematics and Computer Science

Girls' Day - Mathematics and Computer Science

On 25 April 2024 is once again Girls' Day. All girls from the fifth grade onwards can take part and gain insights into interesting topics in the field of applied mathematics. Girls will receive further information by email.

Computers play a more important role in our lives than ever before. They are everywhere and are used to solve complex tasks and control action sequences.

On Girls' Day 2024, the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at TU Freiberg would like to give you an insight into the role of mathematics and computer science in this field.

Topics

A journey through the world of graphs

Graphs consist of so-called nodes, which can be imagined as points, and edges, which are often drawn as connecting lines between the nodes. In representations of very practical problems, the nodes represent concrete objects and the edges represent certain relationships between them. In this workshop you will receive an application-orientated introduction to the world of graphs. Using many practical examples - the marriage problem, traffic light circuits, cost-minimising communication networks and frequency allocations in mobile communications - you can try out the algorithms presented for yourself.

Datascience crash course - don't be afraid of lots of data

The analysis of large amounts of data is part of everyday life in many sciences today. But what options are there when the quantity of measured values becomes too large for standard office software? How can large amounts of data be processed efficiently? The solutions to these questions are often summarised under the term "data science".

Introduction to the world of microcontrollers

In this course, you will learn how to "breathe life" into a small Penguin using a soldering iron and keyboard. Firstly, its small electronics board is fitted with the components. The next step is to programme the Penguin so that it is able to observe its surroundings. (Programming or electronics skills are not required for this).

Aktuelle Themen aus dem Angebot 2024

Entdeckungsreise durch die Welt der Graphen

Graphen bestehen aus sogenannten Knoten, die man sich als Punkte vorstellen kann, und Kanten, die oft als Verbindungslinien zwischen den Knoten gezeichnet werden.

In Darstellungen ganz praktischer Probleme repräsentieren die Knoten konkrete Objekte und die Kanten gewisse Beziehungen zwischen ihnen. In diesem Workshop erhältst Du eine anwendungsorientierte Einführung in die Welt der Graphen. An vielen praktischen Beispielen wie Navigationssystemen, Ampelschaltungen, kostenminimalen Kommunikationsnetzen und Frequenzzuteilungen im Mobilfunk kannst Du die vorgestellten Algorithmen selbst ausprobieren.

Datascience Crashkurs – keine Angst vor vielen Daten

Die Auswertung großer Datenmengen gehört heute in vielen Wissenschaften zum Alltag. Doch welche Möglichkeiten gibt es, wenn die Menge der Messwerte zu groß wird für übliche Bürosoftware? Wie kann man effizient große Datenmengen bearbeiten? Die Lösungen zu diesen Fragen werden häufig unter dem Begriff „Datascience“ zusammengefasst.
