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 event was held in Pontificia Universidad Católica (Santiago) and in Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Valparaíso) on 5th August and 31 th December respectively. It was organized by Capde Millenium Nucleus Center for the Analysis of Partial Differential Equations as part of its outreach activities.
“We aim to encourage young people to approach to science, which often is not an easy task”, remarked Alexander Quaas, Capde researcher. The comedy represents daily situations through the sharp dialogues of a couple.
“The performance was very realistic. The attitude of the mathematician while lecturing was very appropriately depicted”, said Manuel del Pino, main Capde researcher.
