If you have a question about this talk, please contact Julia Hawkins.

‘A mathematician, like a poet or a painter, is a maker of patterns’, G H Hardy famously wrote, and mathematics is a creative art.

Explore what patterns you can discover, unleash your creative thinking and develop your problem-solving skills with hands-on mathematical activities and games for all ages from 5 to adult. From the “anti-Rubik’s Cube” to fractal paper-folding, this is maths, but not as you may know it – join us to explore, experiment, discover, question and create!

There will be a range of activities and games suitable for different ages (5-7; 7-11; 11-14 and 14-16). Please note that under 15s must be accompanied by an adult.

The Maths Cafe will be open from 11.30 until 4pm, serving tea and coffee, soft drinks, sandwiches and snacks.

This free event is part of the 2016 Cambridge Science Festival. No booking needed – drop in throughout the afternoon.
