Maths Public Open Day

Saturday 25 March: 12:00pm - 4:00pm

Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Wilberforce Road, CB3 0WA

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 and understanding how the influenza virus evolves.

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 custard to cosmology!) for visitors of all ages from 8 through to adult.

The Maths Public Open Day happens only once every two years and offers a rare chance to explore inside the fluids dynamics laboratory hidden beneath the lawn of one of the most beautiful modern buildings in Cambridge.
