We offer the following maths school trips:
Uncover how maths has shaped the modern world in London
With so many fascinating museums and workshops to choose from, a maths school trip to London offers students a diverse range of study opportunities. The Winton Gallery at the Science Museum explores how mathematicians have helped shaped the modern world, while the British Museum Maths Education Session offers a fantastic interactive experience for students, with up to nine activities on offer in various galleries.
An hour and half outside of London, Bletchley Park, the home of World War II code breaking, is also a must. Maths trips here let students delve into the pivotal role the secret intelligence service played during the conflict, with workshops tailored specifically for school groups focussing on maths and computing.
Explore the maths behind Paris’ iconic architecture
Our experienced local guides can talk you through the mathematics behind some of Paris’ most famous monuments, including the Louvre, Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, making it a great way for your students to see the city. Maths trips to Paris also include visits to the City of Science and Industry museum, which features a mathematics exhibition covering three millennia of mathematical history, as well as the Palace of Discovery, which contains a number of interactive experiences and spectacular demonstrations to capture students’ imaginations.
Have fun with maths in New York
Home to the Museum of Mathematics (MoMath), New York Hall of Science: Mathematica and the Museum of American Finance, New York is a fantastic study destination for maths students. The MoMath offers brilliant educational sessions which probe into a number of different mathematical theories, while Mathematica allows students to get involved in exciting, hands-on activities designed to captivate their attention. Why not finish off your tour with a visit to the Yankee Stadium or Madison Square Garden and get your students to try and estimate the stadium’s capacity?
