Count on us to make maths fun at February's Lates
Wednesday 22 February, 18.45 - 22.00
Leave the days of stuffy maths lessons and clunky textbooks behind and discover how mathematics is hiding in plain sight at this month's Science Museum Lates.

From music to nature, and gaming to art, explore how maths permeates everything we do with the help of a variety of talks, things to make and create, and a brand new virtual reality experience.

Watch next generation of Brian Coxes and Alice Robertses go head to head to engage and entertain at the final of the FameLab London, and join Pint of Science as they explain how data is used to study the movement of animals and insects to inspire robotics.
Punk Science
Comedy Club
Added to this month's line-up we have Sophie Hagen, winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award for best newcomer in 2015 and the Chortle Best Newcomer Award in 2014, plus more great acts.

Analysing data found that Science Museum Comedy Club attendees laughed more than nonattendees, so join us on Wednesday and multiply maths with mirth.
