Maths Week coming soon

We are looking forward  to welcoming several school groups for Maths Week from Monday 16th to Thursday 20th October. We still have some availability, €4 per person for groups of more than ten, €5 per person for groups of ten or less.

Will you be able to find some of these shapes around the building? We will also be seeing what shapes we find outside before having some fun creating patterns with tessellating shapes with printing and paper mosaics. This curriculum-linked workshop can be adapted to suit all ages.

We are also running a special family session on Saturday 15th at 3pm, €5 per person, tea/coffee included for adults.

If you can't make it along, why not try some tessellations for yourself with this tessellation creator and if you figure out what the hammer does, let us know!
