Geometry Playground will change the way you think about geometry. This traveling exhibition engages your hands, brain, and body in playful investigations of this most visible branch of math.

Find out where and when you can visit Geometry Playground .

Explore the exhibition through these three experience-based themes:

The geometry of seeing

The invisible geometry of light, from distorted reflections to peculiar points of view.

The Geometry of moving

Angles, arcs, and other shapes created when people and things are in motion.

The geometry of fitting things together

Shapes fitting together to make patterns, and spaces divided into patterns of shapes.
