London Mathematical Society 150th Anniversary Mathematics Festival

London Mathematical Society inform, "The LMS, founded in 1865, is marking its 150th Anniversary in 2015."

Tuesday 24th November, 2015 to Sunday 29th November, 2015
The Science Museum, Exhibition Road, London, SW7 2DD

The Society is collaborating with the London Science Museum to create an exciting, interactive Mathematics Festival to be held at the Museum from Wednesday 25th to Sunday 29th November 2015.

The Festival aims to:

- work with mathematicians to develop a range of activities and events that explore what mathematics is and how it is used - nine research groups from a range of both individual and collaborating UK universities will be involved in the event;

- provide Science Museum audiences with a chance to meet mathematicians whose research relates to everyday life, and enable these audience members to discuss mathematics and its importance. and

- provide participating mathematicians with training and practical experience of public engagement activities, allowing them to share their knowledge and experience, and to support them in developing creative activities and events that communicate their work in new ways to new audiences.

The Mathematics Festival will launch with a Late Night event aimed at an older audience with an interest in mathematics and will run for four days, to include a day for schools followed by an open exhibition at the weekend for the general public. The programme will include live demonstrations, interactive exhibits, displays and activities centred on mathematics.
