A Math Festival? Count on It!

Seriously, when you think about it, there aren’t too many things better than math.  Unless, of course, you think about a math festival!  And what’s even better than a math festival?  You guessed it — a math festival in your own backyard!

That’s right!  The first ever National Math Festival will be taking place in Washington, DC on Saturday, April 18th.   Plans for the event include a Math Midway (complete with 20 interactive exhibits), the Oobleck Olympics (at which teams will compete in a hands-on obstacle course while solving “mathletic” problems), and roving topological Houdinis (you can help them escape their handcuffs and strait jackets by using math).

There’s a lot more fun planned.  All the details should be coming out in mid-February.  To find out more, just click here:  National Math Festival or get all the latest by following the news on Twitter @mathmoves .

Oh, and one more thing — do you know what’s even better than a math festival in your own backyard? How about a free math festival in your own backyard?!
