Become a Maths Busker

Engage new audiences of all ages with the wonders of mathematics by joining our training to become a maths busker. Maths busking is the art of using street performance that surprises and delights passers by with entertaining routines deep rooted in maths.

This training is available to staff and students of all levels with an interest in engaging people with maths. We welcome applicants from both maths and statistics, as well as those working in other departments who may still have an interest in maths as a subject.
