‘My soul is spiralling in frozen fractals all around’ sings Elsa, but do you know what a fractal is?
Natalya Silcott will introduce you to these fascinating patterns, to some famous fractals, and to their many uses and applications.
In this workshop students will first create their own Sierpinski Triangles and then come together to build a giant one.
Natalya Silcott is a mathematics teacher at Harrow School, an independent boarding school for boys in Harrow, London, England.
Natalya’s love for Mathematics started when she was a child, growing up on the Caribbean island of Trinidad. She has been teaching for the past 20 years and enjoys sharing her enthusiasm for Mathematics to all.
Alongside her teaching, Natalya is mother to 3, an examiner for a major exam board and co-author of the e-book, 'You CAN Excel in Maths'.
Please note, this workshop is strictly for 7–9 year-olds. There will be a short break during the workshop and a drink and a small snack will be provided. Students should bring their own snack if they have any allergies.
Discounted tickets are available to Ri Members. Find out more about how to join.
