Why arrange a maths school trip?

Discover maths in the ‘real world’

If you're interested in taking your pupils further afield, we offer a number of exciting maths school trip destinations abroad – offering your students the incredible opportunity to discover the importance of maths in the ‘real world’. This will help them to see the value in your subject and could significantly improve engagement once you return to the classroom.

Cities like Frankfurt or New York allow your students to explore two of the world’s most important financial centres. These two global financial centres boast a number of excellent visits where students will explore the exciting world of stock exchanges, banks and finance.

In Frankfurt, they’ll find the heart of the Eurozone and learn more about how the economy of the European Union functions. At the Deutsche Bundesbank Museum, they’ll learn more about the different currencies used around the world, the role of banks and the importance of banking supervision. They can even learn more about the importance of monetary policy and find out what happened during the hyperinflation of the 1920s.

In New York, you can visit the Federal Reserve which underpins the world’s financial system. And at the Museum of American Finance, they can discover why the city’s spirit of entrepreneurship and democratic free market tradition helped it to become the financial capital of the world.

Or why not visit Paris, where the focus is more on the fun and wonder of maths? You'll visit the maths exhibition at the world’s largest science museum, the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie. Here, you can explore geometry, test Pythagoras’ theory and play games on the notions of function, cycloids and transformation. You can also explore the application of maths in a number of scientific fields, including the social sciences.

Frankfurt, New York and Paris show how maths is everywhere around us, and, perhaps more importantly, the exciting careers which maths could open up for pupils.

Explore the history of maths

Florence offers an altogether different, yet no less inspiring experience of maths in action.

This spectacular city in Italy was the birthplace of the Renaissance and it was during this period that the scientific method was developed, which placed greater importance on empirical evidence and mathematics as part of the discovery process. They’ll find out how maths helped Brunelleschi to build the incredible dome that crowns the city’s cathedral.

At the Museo Galileo and Museo Leonardo Da Vinci, your students will learn more about the life and work of two of the Renaissance’s greatest polymaths. They’ll be able to see some truly beautiful historic equipment and inventions.

In nearby Pistoia, the Garden of Archimedes is a dedicated maths museum which aims to enhance the public’s perception and understanding of maths. The interactive exhibits here will bring maths to life for your students and leave them feeling enthusiastic about the infinite possibilities offered by maths.

Enjoy the trip as much as your students

Originally founded by former teachers, and with many former teachers still among us, we understand the value of STEM subjects like maths, and how to make school trips around the topic memorable and successful for your group.

Our team will completely tailor-make your maths trip, to ensure that it meets your specific requirements and learning objectives. And we’ll be on hand throughout the process to answer any questions you have.

In fact, we’ll be with you every step of the way, from now until you return home at the end of your trip. While abroad, you’ll be able to reach us with just one phone call, at any time of the day or night. And, with this comprehensive level of support while you’re away, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy experiencing maths in action as much as your students.
