If you haven’t checked out the new Math-related exhibit at the Rochester Museum and Science center, don’t let the opportunity pass you by. From carnival-inspired booths to brain-challenging activities, it all “adds up” to a load of fun!

The Math Midway exhibition celebrates the wonders of mathematics. More than 20 interactive, playful exhibits allow visitors to slip naturally into the world of pattern, shape and number.

The carnival theme adds to the fun and excitement of exploring this world. The Math Midway encourages direct physical investigation of the surprising breadth and variety of mathematics that can be experienced at many levels.  The age range is Pre-K and up.

See how mathematics can be an experimental science, how it can be a lens through which to view a situation, and perhaps most importantly, how math can be a fun activity accessible to everyone.

We checked out the exhibit this weekend during a Cub Scout overnight at the Museum, and it was a hit with kids and adults alike!
