Are you interested in a maths adventure day in school?
A maths adventure day in schools has been launched called ‘The Dark Codes’. It’s a unique maths event where the school hall is turned into a new ‘city’ using 3D backdrops and props, sounds, lights, videos and theatre and the children take part in an adventure to explore the city, uncovering secret codes and overthrowing evil alien invaders. It’s all hands-on maths and full of action and drama.
