17 students made the trip to the Piccadilly Theatre in London for the annual MathsFest. This was a fantastic opportunity to hear from a series of entertaining mathematicians on a variety of topics.
If you don't watch maths YouTube videos and read maths books for fun you might not be familiar with Matt Parker, James Grime, Rob Eastaway and Hannah Fry. For our students this visit was a privilege to meet Maths celebrity and to have the chance to get their calculators signed!
There was lots of history too – the Enigma machine, Mary Queen of Scots, Pythagoras and Hippasus all got a mention. The art came from Seb Lee-Delisle who designs laser shows and did a demo of how to code artistic effects in Java.
Our students and staff had a very inspiring day along with a chance to learn some important life skills.
