Maths Inspiration is a national programme of interactive maths lecture shows for teenagers. We give 14-17 year olds a chance to experience the UK's most inspiring maths speakers live in theatres, presenting mathematics in the context of exciting, real-world applications. Our shows are exceptional value for money, with ticket prices for our regular shows in 2017 set at £7.50 + VAT. All teacher and PGCE student teacher seats are free.
All shows have three interactive talks, an interval and a lively Q and A session at the end. Many of our shows feature mathematicians, engineers and physicists, so this an ideal STEM outing for your school that can also open your students' eyes to careers they may not have considered before.
Our autumn and spring programme is aimed at Years 11 and 12, but we also run Year 9/10 shows in the summer term that are shorter and even more interactive. Click on our events to see what's coming up near you.
Maths Inspiration began in 2004. Since then over 150,000 teenagers have attended our shows making us one of the largest and most successful maths enrichment programmes in the UK.

How can we help teachers to bring "reluctant" students to MI shows? (Do we need to get Head Teachers on board? Is money the answer?) (2/2)

Many teachers saying "only a few of our students want to go to an MI show". It's the ones who "don't want to come" who SHOULD come. (1/2)
