The maths department welcomed back Eoin MacCuirc from the Central Statistics Office in Cork on Monday 17th. Eoin spoke with all senior students through the course of 3 seminars. The main focus was Making Sense of Numbers where Eoin encouraged students to make numbers personal, for example, it would take approximately 10 days to count to 1 million and 32 years to count to 1 billion at a unit per second. He outlined the roll of the central statistics office and fed back relevant statistics on Carlow. Students were encouraged to always question the validity of a statistic and where it came from. Eoin is also a director of the Simon Community and of the Food bank. He created awareness around food waste and death from hungar and told students about the Food Cloud. The Food Cloud is an app that allows businesses around the country move food, that would otherwise be wasted, to local charities. On Sunday 16th, the food cloud moved 1 tonne of food in Ireland. He encouraged students to participate in the John Hooper Statistics Competition and met with students who entered last year. It was a most enjoyable seminar and we thank Eoin for taking the time to visit us.
