Faculty of Mathematics


23 March 2019, 12.00pm to 4.00pm

Venue: Centre for Mathematical Sciences

Fluids Lab plumes demonstration

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.

Join us at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences on Saturday 23 March 2019, 12 noon-4pm, to discover the wide range of mathematical ideas that are used, explored and investigated in the Maths Faculty. The day includes hands-on activities, demonstrations and a chance to meet and chat to research staff and students. The event 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. Discover more about the diverse areas on which Cambridge applied mathematicians work, with our hands-on fluids activities and demonstrations!

The big Maths Public Open Day happens only once every two years and last took place in 2017. (In the intervening years the MMP organises the hands-on family Maths Fair.)

This free event is part of the 2019 Cambridge Science Festival. No booking needed - drop in throughout the afternoon (12 noon - 4pm).
