Webinar on the Game of MatHex

The Webinar on the Game of MatHex took place on Friday, February 19th, 2021 from 12 pm until 1 pm, with Elena Vazquez Abal, President of the Commission of Women and Mathematics of the Spanish Mathematical Royal Society (RSME), as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker presented on the Game of MatHex, which is based on a grid formed by hexagons inspired by the classic board game HEX created by the mathematicians John Nash and Piet Hein. Elena Vazquez Abal explained that the goal of this game, which can be accessed online for free at https://mathex.games, is to bring science closer to all types of audiences, by combining strategy and knowledge. The speaker also described how this game can be used by teachers in their classrooms and can be adapted depending on the academic level of the students. This virtual event was co-organized with the Spanish Mathematical Royal Society (RSME).
