Find out what could be next after attending an Ri Masterclass, from more learning to the next step in your career.
We hope that you enjoyed the Masterclasses, have made lots of new friends and learnt about new things you can do with maths. If you wanted to do more at home, there is a lovely website called NRICH which has lots of puzzles and other things to do.
Depending on where you are based, it is likely that your next opportunity to attend Masterclasses will be in year 8 or 9 (for England and Wales), S2 or S3 (for Scotland). If you want to make sure that your secondary school is involved, ask your maths teacher to have a look at our site or get in touch with us.
We hope that you enjoyed the sessions, met some like-minded people and discovered inspiring new applications of maths and engineering.
Each summer we have special Celebration Events for secondary masterclass attendees. The events feature a variety of interactive sessions to follow-on from the Mathematics or Engineering Masterclass series earlier in the year, and are an opportunity for students to meet other Masterclass attendees from around the country.
Depending on the area you live in, you may be invited to attend Masterclasses again. We currently have key stage four Mathematics Masterclasses in Glamorgan, London and Lancashire/South Cumbria, as well as sixth form Mathematics Masterclasses in London and Canterbury (please note that each series will have its own selection criteria).
You may be interested in becoming an Ri Young Member of and coming along to some of our events for free.
You can also join the ‘Society of Young Mathematicians' (SYMS) at the Mathematical Association.
If you go on to study maths in sixth form, you can become a member of the IMA (Institute of Mathematics and its Applications), who also have an e16+ newsletter full of interesting stuff.
You could also take your Masterclasses further by doing your own project in a subject which interests you; check out the British Science Association’s CREST Awards scheme, and all of the opportunities offered by the external schemes which link to it.

You might also want to have a look at the residential opportunities available from The Smallpeice Trust.
If you have been to Masterclasses we would love to hear your story.
There are many ways you can stay in touch with the Royal Institution and the Masterclass network. For example, you can become an Ri Member, get involved with future series as an organiser, speaker or helper, or find out more about our Masterclass alumni club. We have a range of events and opportunities for young people, families and the general public; look at our events calendar for more information.
