Holiday workshops

In addition to managing the Masterclass networks, the Masterclass team are organising a number of other Masterclass-related activities at the Ri.

Jon Constable will be delivering two Family Masterclasses for us in the half term, one for primary-aged children and and one for secondary-aged students. Students will learn about the science of acoustics with their families, making and testing loudspeakers to try out the ideas. This workshop is based on a long-standing Engineering Masterclass. The workshop spaces filled up in just a few days; if you missed out make sure you sign up to our general newsletter and be one of the first to hear about our May half-term family activities and Summer School workshops.

We are currently planning for another full and exciting Summer Schools programme of Masterclass-style workshops for young people aged between seven and 18. Full details will be available in April, but if you have any suggestions or would like to get involved please let us know. We are particularly keen to include lots of half-day workshops for ages 7-9 and 10-12, as these are always in very high demand.

Celebrating Women in Mathematics

We are excited to once again host this special day for Year 10 students and their teachers to celebrate women’s contribution to mathematics, in partnership with the Further Mathematics Support Programme at UCL. As well as three interactive talks by leading female mathematicians, there will be the opportunity to find out more about mathematics at University in a Q&A session with current mathematics undergraduates. There will also be a lunchtime competition led by teachers.

This event is free but booking is essential. A maximum of ten Year 10 students per school can attend with their teacher.

Celebrating Women in Technology

The Royal Institution and Ernst & Young are delighted to invite Sixth Form students to a one-day conference celebrating women in technology. Hosted by Kate Bellingham, a TV presenter and engineer, this will be a day of discovery led by leading women from industry and academia working in exciting areas of technology. Delegates will enjoy interactive presentations, participate in a maths/science competition and join in with a Q&A session with four current female undergraduates studying a computer science degree.

This event is free but booking is essential. The event is strictly for Sixth Form students and their teachers.
