Event description

There are many interesting mathematical shapes that can be made using paper or card.

With Katie Steckles, students will look at some fabulous objects they've never seen before and have a go at building them, using their mathematical thinking skills to work out where everything goes.

About the speaker

Katie Steckles is a mathematician based in Manchester who gives talks and workshops on different areas of mathematics. She finished her PhD in 2011, and since then has talked about mathematics in schools, at science festivals, at music festivals, as part of theatre shows and on the internet.

Katie enjoys doing puzzles, solving the Rubik's cube and baking mathematically shaped things.
