YORMATS - Youth-with-OR-for-MAths-in-TS

An innovative Project to expand the knowledge of the Operations Research Science and its Theoretical Foundation at the High Schools of the Trieste Province

logo YORMATS -ORTS UNITS

YORMATS is the first project implemented at the University of Trieste which supports, with a series of educational activities and placement programmes to be held at the headquarter of the Department of Engineering and Architecture (DIA), the most extensive knowledge of applied mathematics and the fundamental theoretical paradigms within the Operations Research Science among the young students attending the High Schools of the Trieste Province.

The basic idea of the project has been developed thanks to the positive experience gained by the scientists and researchers currently working at the Laboratory of Operations Research (ORTS) during the University’ scientific event 'TriesteNextEnergETHIC 2014', where the Group had the opportunity to meet and explain the importance of the use of Mathematics/Operations Research, also regarding the European funded project, to the local young students. This experience revealed to the Group the potential interest which exists among young people in this type of participatory activities. Developed in the following months with the help of the University’ Scientific Communication Office personnel, the project is characterized by the participatory approach and inclusive principles adopted with the aims to contribute to enhance students interest in Mathematics throughout a renewed dialogue between high school and the University.
