The Knapsack Problem
Join Sian Ní Mhuirí of Super Paua theatre for an exciting interactive storytelling adventure. A live online interactive workshop all about the ‘knapsack problem’, suitable for kids aged 8-12 and their grown-ups.
How do you measure the worth of a tin of beans or a pack of matches against a family photograph or a teddy? Have you ever looked around your room and thought about what you would grab if there was a fire? What about if the world is ending, and you have to run away?
The Knapsack Problem is a (*clears throat*) ‘combinatorial optimization algorithm’. In other words, how much good stuff you can fit into a small space, without going over a certain limit. In our case, the limit is how much you carry in a backpack, for as long as you need to walk. And the good stuff is, well, anything in the world… a tin of beans, your piggy bank, binoculars, a lighter, a photo of home.
This is a family workshop for children aged 8-12 and their grown-ups to do together. Places are limited please register below.
