As part of Maths Month North Yorkshire Coast, Bobby Seagull, of University Challenge fame, is coming to Scarborough to talk about his love of maths. Bobby will show how maths is everywhere in the world around us and also how all of us can be mathematicians. From prime numbers that code our data to nature’s insect mathematicians, Bobby will show if you look carefully enough, maths can help you understand our place in the world.
