NRICH activity: Nine Colours'

'A mathematician, like a poet or a painter, is a maker of patterns', G H Hardy famously wrote, and mathematics is a creative art.

Explore what patterns you can discover, unleash your creative thinking and develop your problem-solving skills with hands-on mathematical activities and games for all ages from 5 to adult. From the "anti-Rubik's Cube" to fractal paper-folding, this is maths, but not as you may know it - join us to explore, experiment, discover, question and create!

This event is part of the 2016 Cambridge Science Festival. The event is free, and no booking needed - drop in throughout the afternoon.

The Maths Cafe will be open from 11.30 until 4, serving tea and coffee, soft drinks, sandwiches and snacks.

Find directions and a site map of the Centre for Mathematical Sciences here. Some limited on-site free car parking will be available in the CMS car park, accessible from Wilberforce Road, between 11.30am - 4pm.
