12-02webAt the next edition of SciBar in Liverpool, Professor Peter Giblin of the University of Liverpool will ask “Does Maths Matter?”

Maths teachers are often asked “Why do I need maths?”.  Some people are proud of being bad at maths!  Peter will give his view on why maths matters and describe some of the ways it contributes to day-to-day life.

creativeengland_logo.3.1.1Creative England's Film Culture Fund opened for applications yesterday, with a total of £490,000 delegated Lottery funds from the BFI to distribute in the first round.

The Film Culture Fund aims to boost access for audiences to a wide range of film content in the English regions outside of London, to enrich audiences' experience through education opportunities, and to bring the unique resources of regional screen heritage into wider film provision.

martha lane foxMartha Lane Fox is coming to town to promote the Race Online. What's that I hear you say well it's all about getting people online not some people having a virtual race using connect controllers.

Liverpool has an appalling record for the numnber of people who aren't online or have access to online resources on a daily basis. One of the reasons behind How Why DIY is to encourage people to get online and not be afraid of using technology. See the Liverpool Digital Inclusion Strategy Framework (google doc) for a real lack of ambition.  

Martha is going to have a busy day on 1st November 2011 as she is first at the Liverpool Innovation Park talking about "How can business close the digital divide?" and then at FACT Liverpool for the Roy Stringer Lecture. You can probably still attend both if you are quick enough.
