Our Ri Masterclasses, in mathematics or computer science, nurture students’ curiosity - inspiring them to continue their STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) engagement into the future.

Throughout our Masterclasses, students meet new speakers and volunteers who give them insight into possible careers and help them realise that STEM subjects are for everyone, including them.

Each Masterclass workshop is led by one of our inspiring Masterclass Speakers, who come from a variety of STEM backgrounds.

Safeguarding and Ri Masterclasses

Safeguarding is extremely important to the Ri. We require everyone involved in running Ri activities to share our commitment to safeguarding children and adults at risk. Dependent on their role, we may request background checks for volunteers and other contributors.
