We’re thrilled to welcome back Dr Hugh Hunt, Reader in Engineering at Cambridge University, to GCSE Maths in Action. Hugh grew up in Melbourne, Australia and has been awarded the prestigious Rooke Award for public promotion of engineering. Hugh is famous for his documentaries on Channel 4, including Dambusters – Building the Bouncing Bomb, and Attack of the Zeppelins. He has focused his research on Climate Engineering – how to cool the planet if we fail to meet our CO2 emission targets. In a presentation full of exiting demonstrations, Hugh will answer some fundamental questions including, why does a spinning top stand up? And how do cats always manage to land upright?
