Join Pint of Science Manchester for another special event you can really get your teeth into! Find out how to make sense of Pi and how it can be used in the real world, while tucking into your own delicious pie from the wonderful Pie & Ale. Expert science communicators Dr Katie Steckles & Ben Sparks will guide you through some irrational, improbable but certainly possible maths using puzzles, songs, and the odd unexpected prop. Then test your own knowledge with a quiz for some fabulous prizes! Tickets include a choice of meat, vegetarian or vegan pie plus a pint (or soft drink) of your choice.
