## Events in the Maths Village

We'll be building a workshop space that's a cool polyhedron in the middle of our village, big enough to do workshops in. Come and join us in building the workshop space on Friday. After that, we'll be running a selection of moths workshops and events in the polyhedron, which will mostly be free but some will include a small charge for materials. We'll post a list of workshops on a board outside the polyhedron, and on the Schedule page of the website.

## Friday

**All day (daytime) Building the heptagram antiprism**

**14.00 - 15.00: Project Euler open session**
Project Euler is a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems which can be completed using a language of your choice. Come and join us to try and work through some of them, and we can all help each other if we get stuck.

**[Once the antiprism is finished]: Building five intersecting tetrahedra out of wood**
It is possible to combine five tetrahedra so that none of their edges intersect. Help Matt Parker build a massive compound of five tetrahedra out of wood and LEDs. He has not really thought this through.

**16.00 - 18.00: Mathematical Crochet (and & still building five tetrahedra)**
Many interesting mathematical objects can be made using crochet. We have some yarn and a small number of hooks, and we know some websites with good patterns - come along and make something if you like crochet!

**19.00 onwards: MathsJam**
MathsJam is an opportunity for like-minded self-confessed maths enthusiasts to get together in a pub and share stuff they like. Puzzles, games, problems, or just anything they think is cool or interesting. We'll turn our workshop antiprism into a pub for the evening - BYOB/maths.

## Saturday

**10.15 - 10.45: Braiding with braids**
Come and make a braided friendship bracelet/keyring, and while you're doing it, learn about the mathematical theory of braids.

**11.00 - 12.00: Bird Walk - meet at the antiprism**
Join Adam for a birdwatching walk. BYO Binoculars, but not essential. We'll be recording sightings on a whiteboard and on EMFFAX (like Ceefax, but at EMF).

**12.00 - 13.00: Maths Origami - making five intersecting tetrahedra**
It is possible to combine five tetrahedra so that none of their edges intersect. Inspired by Matt's large wooden light-up version, let's make small ones out of paper!

**14.00 - 15.00: Anamorphic perspective activity**
Anamorphism is a way of distorting images so that they can only be viewed from a particular spot. Come and make an anamorphic image using our projector, and see how it changes as you walk around.

**16.00 - 17.00: Binary Keyrings (£3.50 materials charge)**
Make a laser cut keyring encoding your name in binary! Activity takes around 15 minutes, drop in any time during the hour. £2.50 materials cost (card payments accepted).

**17.40 - 18.20: Post-talk Q&A with Matthew Scroggs and Hannah Fry**
After their main programme talk finishes, the speaker will join us in the Maths Village Antiprism for a Q&A and further chat.

## Sunday

**09.00 - 10.00: Crap yoga**

**10.00 - 11.00: Binary Keyrings (£3.50 materials charge)**
Make a laser cut keyring encoding your name in binary! Activity takes around 15 minutes, drop in any time during the hour. £2.50 materials cost (card payments accepted).

**12.00 - 13.00: Maths Origami - open session**
There are many paper folding and origami activities which are mathematical. Come along and fold some paper while exercising your mathematical thinking skills - we have a selection of different activities to try.

**14.15 - 14.45: Braiding with braids**
Come and make a braided friendship bracelet/keyring, and while you're doing it, learn about the mathematical theory of braids.

**16.00 - 17.00: Project Euler open session**
Project Euler is a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems which can be completed using a language of your choice. Come and join us to try and work through some of them, and we can all help each other if we get stuck.

**17.00 - 18.00: Binary Keyrings (if there is still demand; £3.50 materials charge)**
