In recognition of British Science Week (8-17 March 2019), popular science author Brian Clegg is holding a talk at Swindon Central Library about his new book – Dice World.
The talk is on Tuesday 12th March from 7pm.
Join Brian for a fascinating exploration of probability, statistics and randomness. Explaining how chaos and randomness are often behind the realities of everyday life.
You’ll learn how to toss a head ten times in a row, make predictions with impossible accuracy, why people volunteer to give up thousands of pounds for no good reason, and recreate a game show that left the woman with the World’s highest IQ being reviled by a whole list of academics… until they discovered she was right.
The talk will be followed by a QI-inspired quiz – do come find out exactly how science savvy you are!
