Session Presenter

Tom Briggs

Tom Briggs

Tom Briggs is a massive nerd who is very much in touch with his inner child. This means that his favourite subject is maths, and his favourite way to learn about anything (especially maths) is to play with it until it either breaks, does something weird, or shows him something about the world that he hadn’t realised before. Tom is an experienced maths teacher and freelancer in the world of museum learning who has delivered all sorts of sessions for Potential Plus UK and keeps coming back to do more because he loves it.
