The Royal Institution Masterclass programme opens young people’s eyes to the diversity of mathematics, engineering and computer science. Through series of hands-on extra-curricular workshops, students all over the UK meet to explore these subjects in new and exciting ways.

Throughout a Masterclass series, students meet a range of speakers and volunteer helpers, giving them insight into possible careers and helping them to see that the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects are for everyone. The Royal Institution Masterclasses aim to inspire students to continue their interest and engagement into the future. The Royal Institution work with dedicated contributors who take on a variety of roles to make Masterclasses happen in their area.
