Ask a mathematician, and they will tell you how astoundingly beautiful, profoundly rich, and incredibly exciting the world of mathematics is. If you’re fortunate enough to get beyond the facts and formulae taught in school you can start to see just what a vital role maths plays in the world around us. From patterns in nature and how animals behave in it, to the encryption underpinning modern communication technology and the big data driving decision-making and change, mathematics never ceases to amaze.
SAMI is a charity based in the UK that has been working around the world to help foster a love and appreciation of maths, and its role in society. They have teamed up with the inspiring Harris Westminster Sixth Form School to host a maths camp is week-long event that brings together students, teachers, lecturers and maths enthusiasts from all walks of life, in shared exploration and discovery of ideas which stretch far beyond the traditional school curriculum. It is also an opportunity to reach out and help those who otherwise might not get such experiences in life.
