Taking Shape: Creative Maths Workshops / Maths Week Scotland

About Taking Shape: Creative Maths Workshops / Maths Week Scotland

Following an open call to local teachers and maths enthusiasts to support the project, our creative workshops being delivered as part of ‘Taking Shape’ will incorporate George’s developed work and teaching methods for local families to come along and enjoy. In addition to our local teachers and volunteers, Creative Stirling’s Community Development Officer, Sam Green, will support the delivery of workshops alongside George’s daughter Lesley and grandson Ben.

Workshops and activities are FREE, FUN and available to kids of all ages, with families welcome to join in too. Each workshop will be tailored depending on the group of attendees’ and will allow you to experience multiple different math, geometry and problem solving activities in a visual and creative way. George made fractions, tangrams, puzzles and shapes so much fun, and we want to continue his legacy.

Our first selection of workshop dates are as follows:

27th September 16:30-17:30

28th September 16:30-17:30

29th September 16:30-17:30

30th September 16:30-17:30

Children aged 5+ are welcome to attend without parent/guardian. Anyone under 5 must have parent/guardian supervision.

To allow Creative Stirling to safely monitor class numbers individuals and groups will need to book online for any of the activities.
