Parents and teachers often ask why we call this or that informal activity “mathematics.” Where is math in a puzzle, game, or craft? This year, we did origami at the annual BugFest, and got this question a lot. Why is origami good for your math?

On Saturday, September 26, 10 AM to noon, visit downtown Cary, NC! We will be on the main lawn by the Town Hall, near the sculptures. Cary Visual Art and Natural Math welcome families with children of all ages for a fun and thoughtful scavenger hunt, appreciating the sculptures on exhibit as part of the Cary Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition.
Do you live too far? We’ll post the scavenger hunt materials after the event, so you can run it at your own town!
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to participate in the event, or just show up.
Do you want to volunteer at Natural Math events (online or in the Research Triangle, North Carolina) and work with us to make math adventures happen? Write us at email@example.com to talk! Children and grown-ups are welcome.
