High school students play a maths-based card game

Mega Maths Day

For students in Years 9 and 10
An opportunity to surprise and inspire students with mathematics and showcase the variety of disciplines and careers that require mathematics.

Why maths?

Mathematics is the hidden hero in every STEM discipline whether it be geosciences, biology or psychology. Wherever your students see themselves heading in their future studies and careers, we want to show them how important and useful it is to have a foundation in mathematics.

Your Year 9 & 10 students will join us for a day of STEM fun, including meeting a real mathematician, and your school's choice of three hands-on workshops themed in different disciplines, but all focused on the importance of mathematics.

Year 10 in particular is a key time when your students are choosing their future direction, so give them the opportunity to find out just how important a solid background in maths is for a huge array of disciplines and careers.

Mega Maths Day will show your students how magnificent, marvellous and monumental maths is!
