Cambridge University Public Engagement
The Cambridge University Public Engagement team works across the University and Colleges to support public engagement, community and outreach work, as well as coordinating a variety of events throughout the year.
These events include the Cambridge Science Festival and the Festival of Ideas. In the 2010-11 academic year some 75,000 people attended free public lectures hosted by the University. Furthermore, 50,000 attended the Cambridge Science Festival, the largest free science festival in the UK, and the Cambridge Festival of Ideas, the UK's only free arts, humanities and social sciences festival.

The Millennium Mathematics Project
The Millennium Mathematics Project (MMP) is a maths education initiative for ages 5 to 19 and the general public, based at the University of Cambridge. We want to help everyone share in the excitement and understand the importance of mathematics.
MMP activities, designed to help people share in the excitement and understand the importance of mathematics include our NRICH website, which publishes free resources aimed at students and teachers to help develop problem solving skills, the publication of our magazine, Plus, which is aimed at older students and the general public, and our Hands-On Maths Roadshows, in which we help students explore a broad variety of topics, such as codes and cryptography, to risk and probability. A new activity we are extremely excited about is our Maths and Sport: Countdown to the Games website, which is developing online resources to explore maths through the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
In the 2010/11 academic year MMP web-based mathematical resources attracted more than 4.7 million visits from users worldwide and more than 19.9 million page views, while over 35,000 pupils and more than 4,900 teachers were involved in our face-to-face activities and events. The MMP's various programmes have won many awards and our resources have been repeatedly commended by the UK Government's Department for Education. In 2006 the Queen presented the project with the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education, honouring 'outstanding achievement and excellence' at world-class level.
