Maths25 aims to give students the chance to explore aspects of mathematics and other related STEM subjects in more detail. It goes beyond the school curriculum to expand students’ mathematical understanding and its application. Students who attend Maths25 have the opportunity to develop practical, teamwork and leadership skills, as well as increasing their confidence and engagement in mathematics.
