Next Steps

From MathsCity to MathsWorld

We launched MathsCity in Trinity Leeds shopping centre in October 2021. We are using this centre to take maths to the public and to further our mission to create a National Mathematics Disocvery Centre with working title, MathsWorld.

Objectives for 2022-24

  • In a shopping centre in Leeds, establish a 300+m sq maths visitor centre
