This is a video about a maths camp for secondary students held yearly at Maseno University, in western Kenya.
Here are the words from the song!
Well you can't get away from mathematics,
And once you've been to maths camp you wouldn't want to try
Coz there's a beauty in the order that surrounds us
Invisible until you find the rules of how and why.
She's walking down a dirt path on a Sunday afternoon
Walking past the flowers neath the pale pale moon
And she's thinking 'bout the week that's coming towards her
About the camp for mathematics where she's never been before
She's gonna find a few good numbers
Find a few good friends
Learn some new ideas that she can take back home again
She's gonna play a lot of games with messages inside
She'll learn some secret rules by even which the moon is tied.
I dream of Fibonacci spirals all wrapped around my days
And the little strings that vibrate in the space between my brain
Holding everything together like the strings of a guitar
And remind me when we leave again it's really not too far
Coz there's always a geodesic leading back to Maseno
A short electron highway to the people that we know
When the week is over we'll go home in matatus
And share the things we've learned until another year is through.
