Free Bike Schemes

There are 2 schemes we’d like to draw your attention to which can support your family in covering the cost of a bike for a child.

  1. Edinburgh City Council have launched Brake the Cycle which is a bike renovation scheme for community organisations, youth groups and schools. Pupils/families can apply online at  www.edinburgh.gov.uk/cycling-walking/brake-cycle/1
  1. The second is Bikes for Refugees which is aimed at asylum seekers or those who have been granted refugee status. An online application will need to be filled in using the following link visit www.bikesforrefugees.scot/new-scots/#request-a-bike. Once submitted they will add you to the waiting list (around 3 months for Edinburgh but is dependant upon the size of bike required matching the availability of bikes in stock.)

Maths Enrichment Opportunities From Edinburgh University

Edinburgh University are offering 2 opportunities to stretch those number brains

Here it the information they have sent us.

Online Maths Circle- Saturday 26th March 2022

An online Maths Circles is one hour long events for 7-14 years old and their families. Children have a chance to tackle a variety of mathematical problems guided by University of Edinburgh staff and students. They are encouraged to behave as little mathematicians as they make conjectures, explore and explain possible solutions to open ended questions. We think these event would benefit all students, and not only the high achieving.

Most of the activities we use during our Maths Circles are courtesy of nRich (https://nrich.maths.org/

The next online Maths Circle will be this Saturday (26th March). Attendance is free but booking is required. 

Further details and info on how to book can be found at: https://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/school-of-mathematics/outreach/maths-circle 

Circles in Maths, Nature and Everyday Life (Edinburgh Science Festival): 9th- 13th April 2022

In April 2022 we will contribute to the Edinburgh Science festival with a drop-in session taking place at the National Museum of Scotland. Our activities will explore the characteristics of the circle, and how such characteristics underpin various aspects of science, technology and everyday life, such as using a map or rolling a coin through a vending machine.
