This is residential, and will take place over two days on 11-12 July, aimed at year 10 students.

The goal of this summer school is to show students the beauty of Mathematics
and Science, and the wide breadth of career opportunities that these subjects
open up in the future, in order to encourage them to choose Mathematics at A-level.

This residential is open to female students who are interested in studying Mathematics
and related courses at a top university. On the residential, attendees will take part in
lectures and hands-on classes taught by Cambridge academics. They will meet current
students and admissions staff, as well as Newnham Maths alumnae who will share details
of their career paths and other opportunities outside of academia.

The residential is free of charge, including accommodation, and all food is provided.
There are funds available to cover transport costs for attendees who have spent time in
local authority care, or who are eligible for free school meals.
