Hosted by MathSpace
This event will be a "Show and Tell" evening. Please bring along something awesome so show to people, or come along and see the awesome things other people have brought.

Awesome things to look at will include a machine learning robot built from 304 matchboxes!

We will meet from around 6:30. There will probably be cake!
