Maths Craft New Zealand have been invited to attend the Tauranga STEM Festival in October. This is a new festival inspired by Ada Lovelace Day, and aimed at giving children, young people, parents, families, and local STEM professionals and experts a chance to engage with each other in a fun environment, with an emphasis on celebrating STEM.
The Maths Craft area will feature a collection of craft creation stations that promises to engage people of all ages. Build a fractal sculpture, explore the wonders of the Möbius strip, fold an origami octahedron, 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.
