Count Me In
Ever wondered how you measure the height of a star?
Or maybe you fancy trying your hand with a Lightning Calculator?
Join us for an afternoon celebrating British Science Week 2023 with activities exploring numbers, calculation — and why maths matters in the real world.
- The Measurers: get hands-on with objects and activities to unravel the mysteries of a painting
- Digits, feet, inches and furlongs: discover how — and why — we measured things in the past
- Take the abacus challenge: find out how this ingeniously simple counting instrument works
- What are Napier's Bones?: how did they make it easier to calculate?
Can we count you in?
Look forward to seeing you there.
