Maths Craft is delighted to have been invited back to the Space & Science Festival in 2018! This year the festival's daytime event will be held on 26 May from 12 to 4 pm at Onslow College, Wellington. The Space & Science Festival is an annual celebration of science at which thousands of visitors enjoy a wide range of science activities and talks. 

The Maths Craft area will feature a collection of craft creation stations that promises to engage people of all ages. Knit a mathematical knot, explore the wonders of the Möbius strip, fold an origami octahedron, draw an impossible triangle, or colour a Latin square and learn about the fascinating relationships between maths and craft. Enthusiastic volunteers, experienced in both mathematics and crafts, will make you feel at home no matter what your age or background.
