An award programme for teachers and teaching assistants with great ideas to encourage creativity and problem-solving in maths and computer science.

There is broad consensus that skills such as creativity and problem-solving will be vital in ensuring young people from all backgrounds are well-prepared for life and work in the 21st century. At Nesta we’ve launched Classroom Changemakers, an award programme to unearth, celebrate and share great ideas from teachers and teaching assistants which aim to give young people the opportunity to be creative and solve problems in maths and computer science. We have awarded 15 teachers and teaching assistants £5,000 each to their school or college to celebrate their work. Find out more about the successful applicants below.
