Event description

Description

This workshop with Caroline Ainslie is a perplexing, puzzling, problem solving period of fun challenges, to fire up enquiring minds. Young mathematicians will be exercising mathematical skills by collaborating, manipulating resources, spotting patterns, making decisions, estimating and building on lessons learnt. All of this, using giant, colourful balloons.

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

This workshop is based on an Ri Mathematics Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on summerschools@ri.ac.uk with any questions.

Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (14 calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
