Every semester, the Statistics Club at Florida International University (FIU) plans for a board member to host an event related to one of their favorite statistical topics. In February, club board member Samuel Mirtil hosted a “counting cards” social, which included an interactive workshop on how to count cards using probability and expected values.

After Mirtil demonstrated how to count cards, everyone put their new skill to the test in games of Blackjack. For their effort, demonstration participants walked away with water bottles and pins with the club logo. All attendees left with a deck of cards so they could continue practicing their card-counting skills.

Approximately 20 people attended, the club gained three new members, and—most importantly—everyone had lots of statistics-related fun.
