Events and Workshops

Mother's Day
and Latin Square

May 2023

We were invited by Bridges to Science to provide a workshop for Mother's Day.  It was an honor to celebrate, with this enthusiastic group of families, this important occasion.
Our workshop included the introduction to permutations, and the concept of Latin square as a square matrix nxn, where n elements are used.  We discussed the connection with real life applications, such as the Sudoku game and the correction of codes in broad band internet signals.   The families weaved their own Latin Square to be used as a photo frame.  We celebrated with cookies and tea.  Our math interns taught the families some origami techniques to create beautiful flowers and butterflies.

Sponsored by Bridges to Science, VELA Education Fund and MathHappens Foundation.

National Pi Day
March 2023

We opened our doors, in collaboration with Bridges to Science, Math Circles of Houston, and the MathHappens Foundation to celebrate National Pi Day.  Our enthusiastic visitors took part in designing patterns with intersecting circles, creating bookmarks using spirograph designs, and discovering geometric probability using paper rockets.  After exploring the other math displays, the energetic participants left with an oatmeal cream "pie" in their goodie bags.

Valentine's Math Day
February 2023

We loved hosting a local Girl Scout troup for Valentine's.  Girls enjoyed stacking small and large scale blocks to form animal figures, discovering symmetries with a book mirror, and creating their own designs with these symmetries.  Girls were eager to color tiles to form beautiful tessellations.
The troup liked the free time they had discovering the many other math displays we have in our location.

Holiday Math Day.
December 2022

Our first math event at our location!  Lots of fun with kirigami and origami snowflakes, a scavenger hunt with challenging and cool math problems.  The visitors created their own ornaments with Koch's snowflakes and icosahedrons, decorated with geometric figures our arithmetic sequence tree, and enjoyed a photo shoot with our icosahedron snow man.
We all enjoy lots of math surprises, and some sugar cookies with hot cocoa.

Math treats, tricks and puzzles.
October 2022

We were present at the Family 'Arbooretum' Event.
In collaboration with  the MathHappens Foundation, families enjoyed combinatoric puzzles, rotating wheel effect disks, mirror projections, and the popular tiling snow flakes and other geometry figures
with colorful tiles.
