Mathematics and Physics Masterclasses

Masterclasses for Schools and Colleges

The School of Mathematics and Physics offer a range of masterclasses available to school and college students in order to give them a taste of what it might be like to learn at Lincoln. These sessions aim to demonstrate our range of knowledge and expertise at Lincoln, while giving prospective students an insight into what they might study if they choose to undertake a degree in mathematics or physics. Explore our masterclasses below or get in touch with our outreach lead Dr Matthew Booth to request a specific masterclass.
