We had a fantastic night with about 100 people at the inaugural “Science Gets Social: Maths in the Movies” event at World Science Festival Brisbane 2017.

Movies and math topics covered include: 

  • Code Cracking in The Imitation Game, Swordfish and Terminator 2
  • The Bus Jump in Speed

Attendees got to actually crack codes and defuse a ticking time bomb, learn how to count cards and try and beat the casino at games of chance.
