This is the reason I have used Broadway Tours over the last three years and the excellent service that Tigre provides. [The tour was] very enjoyable and all students and staff got much out of the activities.PS, Warden Park School (visit to Bletchley Park and the Centre for Computing History)

Mathematics is everywhere, from counting seats at Barcelona’s Camp Nou and working out the percentage apportioned to home and away fans, to measuring the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the angles between Brussels‘ Atomium spheres. The understanding of ICT and computer science meanwhile plays a pivotal role in today’s digital age, as advances in communications and technology become ever more sophisticated.

With subject-themed visits like the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Reserve and Museum of Mathematics, Florence’s Garden of Archimedes and Geneva, Budapest and Berlin‘s museums, institutes and commercial organisations devoted to communications technology, Broadway Tours can personalise your tour to cater not only for your mathematical, ICT and computer science needs, but also tailor them to your group’s ability level, too.

Suggested Mathematics / ICT / Computer Science School Trip Itineraries

If you’re looking to concentrate on one principal city or region to really bring the subject of mathematics, ICT or computer science to life, we can design a bespoke itinerary to suit not only your particular subject focus, but also your budget.

Equally, if you’d prefer a balance of specialist subject matter, coupled with the opportunity to see some of the city’s principal attractions (or simply have a bit of fun), we’ve got a wealth of tried and tested ideas to create the perfect, educationally-rich itinerary, all the while carving out a notch of all-important leisure time.

If you’ve got a mathematics / ICT / computer science school trip in mind, or you don’t see quite what you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to contact us with your requirements and we’ll do our level best to exceed your expectations.

Barcelona & Catalonia

Borsa_de_Barcelona_smallSet on the shores of the Mediterranean, Barcelona represents the ideal educational tour destination, combining high art from the likes of Picasso, Dalí and Miró and Gaudí’s flamboyant architecture with history, heritage and a proud Catalan culture, all perfectly topped off with a vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere and subject-focussed sightseeing opportunities galore.

Budapest

Budapest_place_heros - smallA city with a rich and varied history stretching back to Roman times, Budapest is a popular tourist destination and offers a fantastic range of sights to suit all interests. Straddling both sides of the River Danube, Hungary’s capital is not only home to some beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites, but also a number of high-profile software and telecommunications companies.

Frankfurt

Geneva

ICT Discovery (c) ITU Pictures - smallRenowned as the worldwide capital of peace and diplomacy, Geneva is also impressive on the scientific and communications front, too, with CERN, the European Council for Nuclear Research’s particle physics research laboratory on its doorstep. A visit to the ICT Discovery (currently closed for renovations), part of the UN’s specialized agency for ICT, is a must.

London

San Francisco is a supreme destination with plenty of iconic landmarks and historic attractions to satisfy all interests. Couple this with Silicon Valley a short distance away and students of computer science will be in seventh heaven! Visits to the Tech Museum of Innovation, Computer History and Intel Museums are an absolute must. There’s also an Apple Visitor Center coming soon!

Berlin

Museum of Kommunikation - smallOne of our most popular destinations, Berlin is a fascinating host city for a school tour. With iconic landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and Berlin Wall, not to a wealth of IT and telecommunications companies based in the city, Berlin offers an excellent mix of tradition and technology. Be sure to include a visit to the Communication Museum.

Florence

Leonardo_da_Vinci_-_presumed_self-portrait_smallDynamic cradle of the Italian Renaissance, Florence is renowned for its abundance of artistic and architectural treasures. Yet the city also boasts a proud mathematical and scientific heritage, with museums devoted to Archimedes, Galileo and Leonardo da Vinci all situated here. Pisa’s leaning tower also makes for an ideal mathematical study.

Futuroscope
