For several years the Universities of Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh have been running Masterclasses for the brightest mathematics school students in Lothian Region. The pupils, aged about 13, spend 2 1/2 hrs each Saturday studying recent developments in Mathematics. The Masterclass programme for 2003 is as follows.
