G4G Celebration of Mind (Letchworth) 2015 – A Great Success

Thank you for all who came to and gave talks / demonstrations at this event last weekend. We are sure you will all agree that it was a fantastic day!

Highlights of the day included James Dalgety’s automated bridge card dealing machine, Ollie Sovary-Soos putting impossible objects into bottles, a flying shark, Adrian Fisher’s mazes and drone, Alison’s talk on Einstellen chess problems, finding out the answer to how to make ¬£million by Solving Infinity (“it involved a bit of luck”), some interesting shapes and a bit of magic.

There was so much going on! I am sure we have missed some out, so please don’t feel offended if we haven’t mentioned you! Perhaps comment on this post to let us know what was your favourite part of the day?

Thank you Donald Bell for sending us your photos (many of which we have used here!) If anyone else has any good pictures, please send them to us!
