Our open day on 28 September was attended by around 200 people. We hope they were all as delighted as this young man being shown mathematical card tricks by Dr Julia Collins, Mathematics Engagement Officer at University of Edinburgh.

Other activities around the building included an arithmetical version of scrabble, short videos from the Mathematics of Planet Earth project, a textile art installation from Botanica Mathematica and puzzles and games such as a Penrose tiling puzzle shaped like chickens!
