Maths in Museums
Maths in Museums Fund was a smaller fund available in 2021 to local museums. Six museums received funding Gairloch Museum, National Mining Museum Scotland, Scottish Maritime Museum, East Lothian Council Museums Service, South Lanarkshire Museums and Summerlee Museums. Activity varied from self led trails to schools workshops to family activity days. You can see more here
For many it was the first time taking part in Maths Week Scotland, and the first time running maths focused activity at their sites. Each attended a training session in February 2021 run by Maths Week Scotland and received support from Education Scotland staff in developing their resources.
