To become a Mathstronaut, you must exceed expectations and see what others don't. At Dynamic Earth, the story of our universe and our planet contains hidden depths, and maths can help us see them. Come along and be one of our Mathstronauts!

Included within the regular ticket price, the Mathstronaut pack will invite you to explore the chapters of our universe - how many particles do radioactive rocks actually spit out? How close has planet Earth come to absolute mass extinction? Can the human brain solve unsolveable puzzles? Can symmetry help us bring the rainforests to life?

Running from Monday 30th September until Sunday 6th October, this opt-in experience adds to the huge amount of Maths week 2019 events taking place all over Edinburgh.

Bonus level: keep the pack and look out for the QR code!
