Maths in the Pipeline


TechFest's Maths in the Pipeline event is designed to give S4 pupils an insight into how Mathematics applies to real-life situations within the Oil and Gas sector. 

The one-day event has been running since 2005 and encourages students to engage with industry professionals from local Oil and Gas companies and use the Maths they have learned in school to solve problems tackled daily by these professionals.  


This event is a full day of hands on workshops presented by industry professionals demonstrating the practical application of Mathematics in the Oil and Gas Industry.
