Planning an Eco-friendly Party
Two or four-hour session to do your bit for the environment and ditch the plastic and waste associated with parties. Learn mathematical facts and figures about waste and use measure and calculations as you make your own decorations, such as bunting, piñatas, and rosettes and get ideas on sustainable party bags and gifts.
These sessions can be themed around seasonal events such as Halloween, Easter, Christmas, or for birthdays.
Two-hour session aimed at parents and carers of children aged 4-12 years, supporting them to develop their children’s love of maths. We introduce them to the Century maths app, which offers free online courses for adults and there is a reward of a £20 shopping voucher for every course completed on Century. There is an option for the session we deliver to end with some ‘family learning’ time, where the children join their adults in a carousel of fun maths-related activities.
