Millennium Mathematics Project - Stimulus Programme

The programme involves Cambridge University students from a wide range of disciplines, including mathematics, engineering, physics, medicine, computer science, biology, zoology, natural sciences and law, who help with maths, science and ICT classes in primary and secondary schools around the city of Cambridge.

STIMULUS creates around 200 volunteer placements each year: each placement involves a student volunteer helping for one afternoon each week throughout a University term in their assigned school.
