All of our maths workshops for secondary schools in Scotland have been carefully designed to put into context and actively promote the keystones of the Curriculum for Excellence – as well, of course, as supporting the push to Make Maths Count. Tapping into pupils’ own creativity, our unashamedly fun workshops engage, motivate and, crucially, challenge the children and young people we work with, providing them with meaningful experiences and outcomes.

Over half a million children and young people have taken part in one of our Creative Maths workshops. 

"One of the best STEM Events that I have ever booked. The students found the workshops extremely interesting, engaging and fun. One pupil asked, “Miss, can we do this every Thursday?” Park Mains High School, Erskine

"An absolutely fantastic day. The pupils that took part were fully engaged through the entire time Jackson was working with them. The enthusiasm for problem solving and maths was obvious from the pupils, and there have already been requests for another visit!” St Mungo’s Academy, Glasgow
