NRICH Y12 girls workshop

This full-day event for Year 12 girls (ages 16-17) studying A-level Mathematics is designed to broaden mathematical horizons, give a stimulating introduction to advanced mathematical problem-solving, and encourage more girls to study Mathematics at university. The day will include talks giving an insight into some of the areas of maths encountered at university, and interactive problem-solving workshops. The event will explore some of the challenging, exciting and rewarding mathematics encountered in a undergraduate degree, and will give an opportunity for students to develop their mathematical thinking and confidence in tackling challenging problems.

Outline timetable:

09.45 - 10.30: Arrival and registration (you are welcome to arrive at any point within this time, so long as you are in good time for the start of the first session at 10.30)
10.30 - 4.30: The day will involve a mix of talks by researchers from the University of Cambridge Faculty of Mathematics, and interactive problem-solving workshops led by NRICH. Speakers include Dr Beth Romano, Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, and Professor Julia Gog, Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics.

Lunch will be provided and is free.

4.30: End and depart

How to book:

This event is free for students at UK state-maintained schools/colleges. Places must be pre-booked by individual students - please ensure you have permission to attend from your school/college and your parent/guardian/carer before booking a place.

Please note: this event is now fully booked. You can join the waiting list to be notified if any places become available.

This event is aimed at Y12 girls studying A-level Mathematics, especially those who may consider studying a mathematically-related subject at university. Participants must be taking A-level Mathematics (or equivalent): in schools that offer Further Maths A-level, we would expect you to be taking Further Mathematics too, but students from schools which do not currently teach Further Mathematics are also warmly welcomed.

If you have any questions about attending the event, eligibility or booking, please email us.

Travel bursaries

Thanks to funding from the University of Cambridge Widening Participation Project Fund, there is some limited funding available for travel bursaries if you are in local authority care and/or are currently eligible for Free School Meals - please give details of your estimated travel costs in the relevant section on the application form.
