We all know that people with maths, science and technology skills are experienced at problem-solving. But how useful are those skills in the real world? In this QED workshop, mathematician and speaker Katie Steckles will show you some mathematical, logical and geometrical tricks to solve some of everyday life's minor challenges - from tying your shoelace to changing a duvet cover, and plenty of others. You'll never fold a t-shirt the same way again!
