The Einstein Mad Hat Awards – London

Dave Smith, HAT Author at the Einstein Mad Hat Awards at the House of Commons in London.

UKMT and the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) in New York, announced a joint competition to celebrate the discovery of the Hat Tile, an “Einstein” or aperiodic monotile, a shape which can tile the plane but can only do so non-periodically (in a non-repeating pattern).

Competition winners have now been selected – from the UK and internationally – and were awarded their prizes at the HAT Awards at The House of Commons on 12th December.  View the event highlights in the video below.

Dame Baroness Walmsley, Politician and advocate for women in STEM, David Smith, HAT Author, and Cindy Lawrence and Chaim Goodman-Strauss from MoMath were in attendance.
