Design meets Maths at Kidbrooke Arts Festival

This week, we’ve been back to school: Kidbrooke School in south London runs a two-day arts festival each year, bringing in artists from different disciplines to work with faculties and Year 9 students on exploring areas of the curriculum in new ways. Lydia was paired with the Maths faculty for a collaborative project where Platonic shapes made from paper became products, which were branded and packaged. The thinking involved enabled students to look both at the structures themselves and at the character and value of Maths.
