Description


You’ll want to be in the room at Ludlow Bar when some of the most interesting people in Melbourne share how they view the world with a mathematical mindset. Whether you’re a teacher, accountant, engineer or just a maths lover, our panel will leave you feeling inspired. You'll have an opportunity to hear about their pathway through maths and explore your own. So, come grab a drink on us and mingle with some fellow mathematicians!

Canapes are included along with your first drink, additional drinks at bar prices.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Eat Up, a charity that provides lunch to young Aussies who would otherwise go without. Their aim is for no student to go school hungry, which directly affects their ability to concentrate, engage and enjoy school.
