Visit the Mathematics of Planet Earth Exhibition

The MPE CDT has a great pleasure invite you to ‘Mathematics of Planet Earth’ Exhibition which will take place in the main entrance of Imperial’s South Kensington Campus, between Saturday 24 October– Sunday 1 November 2015. Mathematics of Planet Earth is an international exhibition displaying exhibits, videos and computer programs. Collectively these illustrate how mathematics plays a role in answering essential questions that concern our planet. In graphics visualisations and hands-on experiments you will discover the contributions that mathematics makes to topics such as astronomy, fluid dynamics, seismology, glaciology and cartography. The MPE CDT will provide a number of activities and tours available for families and children of all ages.
