The MPE CDT would like to invite you to ‘Mathematics of Planet Earth’ Exhibition which will take place in the main entrance of Imperial’s South Kensington Campus, between Saturday 15  February– Sunday  23 February 2020. 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.
