Cambridge Science Festival Maths Public Open Day
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Julia Hawkins.
From Isaac Newton onwards, Cambridge has been associated with some of the most famous mathematicians in history. Modern mathematicians and theoretical physicists work on everything from the Big Bang to number theory, from geometry to modelling the shrinking of Arctic sea ice, exploring quantum information or understanding how disease epidemics spread.
Join volunteer staff and students from the Faculty of Mathematics to share the excitement of the subject through hands-on activities, games and demonstrations (featuring everything from Lego epidemics to the mathematics of image processing!) for visitors of all ages from 8 through to adult.
The Maths Public Open Day also offers a very rare opportunity to explore inside the fluids dynamics laboratory hidden beneath the lawn of one of the most beautiful modern buildings in Cambridge. Hands-on fluids activities and demos will explore some of the areas on which Cambridge applied mathematicians work.
The Maths Cafe will be open throughout the event, serving tea, coffee, soft drinks, snacks, cakes and sandwiches.
This event is part of the 2017 Cambridge Science Festival. No booking needed – drop in throughout the event (12 noon – 4pm).
