Royal Institution Mathematics Masterclasses come to Amery Hill School
Amery Hill School is delighted to have hosted a series of The Royal Institution’s Mathematics Masterclasses, involving students from eleven schools across Hampshire. The talented students from Year 9 had the chance to flex their mathematics skills with workshops led by enthusiastic speakers from industry, higher education and The Royal Institution itself.
The collaborative project, led by Amery Hill School with support from Southampton University, saw youngsters encouraged, inspired and engaged in the art and practice of maths. Talking about the masterclasses, Lead Practitioner and Project Organiser, Miss Gillian Staerck from Amery Hill School, said “The students have thoroughly enjoyed the intellectual challenge that the programme has provided. We look forward to welcoming the Royal Institution back again next year.”
Speakers included Professor David Cohen, Royal Holloway, University of London; Samantha Durbin, Royal Institution; Christine Currie, University of Southampton; Phil Ramsden, Imperial college and George Engelhardt.
