Live Streaming of the Royal Institution's Christmas Lecture by Dr Hannah Fry 'Secrets and Lies: the hidden power of maths'

About this Event

We are excited to present the LIVE STREAMING of the Royal Institution Christmas Lecture presented by Dr Hannah Fry 'Secrets and Lies: the hidden power of maths'

Join this Christmas tradition that has delighted and inspired children and adults since they were founded by Michael Faraday in 1825. You will see the first lecture as it's filmed, live streamed from the famous Royal Institution lecture theatre in London, and take part in interactive activities presented by our team in Swansea.

In this lecture, TV presenter and mathematician Hannah Fry will reveal a hidden layer of maths that now drives everyday life in powerful and surprising ways. Life’s most astonishing miracles can be understood with probability, big data dictates many of the trends we follow, and powerful algorithms secretly influence even our most important life choices. She exposes how our gut instincts are often unreliable, while an unseen layer of maths drives everyday life in powerful and surprising ways.

In partnership with Oriel Science, the National Waterfront Museum, Technocamps and the Royal Institution.

Suitable for ages 11 years and up.
