Exhibition Details

Exhibition Name:

A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature

Description: A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature is an interactive and immersive new touring exhibit that exposes and explains the mathematical patterns that abound in the natural world—from the delicate nested spirals of a sunflower’s seeds, to the ridges of a majestic mountain range, to the layout of the universe—providing a unique perspective of our daily surroundings. The centerpiece of the exhibit is an elaborate mirror maze in which guests can explore and navigate a seemingly infinite repeating pattern of mirrors. Interactive elements throughout the exhibit allow for hands-on learning to understand that math is all around us in everyday life, revealing the beauty of our world through numbers. The exhibit also features an array of artifacts—Bighorn sheep antlers, honeycomb and an aluminum anthill casting—that demonstrate real examples of patterns in objects from the natural world.
