Event description

Description

Join us to find out more about our national Masterclass programme, where we work with partners all over the UK to deliver series of inspiring interactive workshops in mathematics, engineering and computer science for young people.

Aoife Hunt will give us a taste of Masterclasses in her talk exploring how mathematics is used to plan for large crowds at events, such as Glastonbury, and in stadiums, such as Wembley. Aoife will tell you about an exciting new technology that can simulate the behaviours and movements of crowds, and the maths underpinning this work.

During the evening, find out what it’s like to volunteer as a Masterclass helper or workshop leader, try out a variety of Masterclass-style activities and chat to those already involved in the programme.

If you are interested in mathematics, engineering or computer science outreach and want to get more involved, or just want to have some fun seeing more of what we do in our education team, then this event is for you.

Please note that this event is for those aged 18 and above.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. The talk will be followed by an informal reception from approximately 8.15pm where participants will be able to try out Masterclass-style activities and chat to existing Masterclass volunteers.

Latecomers to the talk will be admitted to the gallery.

By booking to attend events at the Royal Institution, you confirm that you have read and agree to the Ri's event terms and conditions.


Interested in becoming a Masterclass volunteer but can't make this event?

The Masterclass team is always keen to welcome new volunteers to support our programme. The main requirement for our volunteers is an enthusiasm for sharing their love and knowledge of the STEM subjects and the ability to communicate with young people.
