I love festivals! I love to go to small town festivals, arts and crafts, and more. But who knew that there is a festival celebrating math??? I wish I lived a bit closer to DC ... I would definitely make this a destination.
Check it out ... this is what the organizers say:
The National Math Festival brings together some of the most influential mathematicians of our time to inspire and challenge participants to see math in new and exciting ways. Through a day of lectures, hands-on demonstrations, art, films, performances, puzzles, games, children’s book readings, and more, we bring out unexpected sides of mathematics for everyone, from toddlers to adults of all ages.
The National Math Festival is free and open to the public from 10:00 a.m. till 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in the heart of downtown Washington, D.C. Join us, or celebrate wherever you are with events at dozens of science museums around the U.S. and More Math! games and resources online!
Wouldn't it be fun to celebrate math with a festival in our schools? Yes ... a lot of work ... but a lot of fun!
