Overview

Ri Masterclasses are a series of workshops which are led by enthusiastic speakers from industry, academia and education. They offer students in-depth investigations of topic areas outside of the school curriculum, combining theory with interactive exploration.

We aim to challenge students who are curious about computer science and we are keen to reach students for whom other opportunities may not be readily available. Participants need enthusiasm, along with a determination to explore!

Participation is free for all state-school students. Please note that students are expected to attend the entire series of masterclasses.
