More than four hundred school students enjoyed seeing “Primos entre sí”, an amusing and ingenious theater play that seeks to awake the interest in Mathematics.
The threatre play “Love, Equations and Geometry ” is adressed to a general audience, especially young people. This play, which is organized by the mathematician and Uruguayan playwright Omar Gil (also an expert in nonlinear PDEs ) and the Chilean theater company “La Coraje “, seeks to wake the interest in mathematics, scientific curiosity and appreciation of the beauty of this discipline. It represents human and daily situations through the sharp dialogues of a couple. The idea is to adapt, with emphasis on mathematical analysis and geometry, the hit play of the same name that has already been performed by this company in Chile . This activity is supported by the programme EXPLORA, which is carried out by Conicyt.
On the occasion of the Congress of the Future, an space for exchange of ideas between Chileans and world class thought leaders, Millennium Science Initiative organizes two activities, which are free and open to the public, in Valparaíso (Chile).
“Nice Concepts- a poetic walk through mathematics” , the educational video supported by Capde and produced by the Department of Mathematical Engineering of Universidad de Chile, is already available on youtube.
