Fresh from success with their maths/comedy tour Your Days Are Numbered: The Mathematics of Death, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker and comic/writer Timandra Harkness have put together a new maths-based comedy show, and this time instead of statistics getting the comedy treatment, it’s engineering. The show, titled ‘Humans v Nature: Engineering FTW’ looks at all the challenges Mother Nature has thrown in our way, like darkness, cold weather, gravity and hay fever, and all the things engineers have come up with to combat them. Also: there will be robots.
Supported by the Royal Academy of Engineering, the show will preview under various titles at Cheltenham Science Festival, Winchester Science Festival and Cardiff Science Festival before a 10-day run at the Edinburgh Fringe comedy festival. Tickets are now on sale, here:
