A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature
At the center of it all: a 1,700-square-foot elaborate mirror maze where visitors can lose themselves in a seemingly infinite repeating pattern of mirrors. This arrangement of symmetry and tessellation is the ultimate introduction to patterns and how math is an integral part of our lives.
Dead ends are scattered throughout, and a small secret room is hidden within, rewarding you with bonus puzzles and artifacts.
Step inside an immersive theater and watch stunning footage of nature, the human body, and even art and architecture. And by participating in hands-on activities, you can check out more math — fractal branching, spirals, Voronoi patterns, the golden ratio, and more.
From measuring your own wingspan to viewing your own eyes' blood vessels, creating computer-generated landscapes to playing a multistring harp, you'll manipulate and create your own mathematical patterns. Throughout this interactive experience, you'll come to appreciate the beauty of our world through numbers!
