MathHappens started off Austin Museum Day bright and early by heading to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
Visitors thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Golden Ratio and how it appears throughout the world around us. Visitors discovered the Golden Ratio on their arms, hands, in a hurricane, on an ant and zebra, and more! A popular make-and-take activity was coloring and wearing a Golden Ratio Spiral Necklace. People of all ages were having fun and learning something new.
It was Paola and Kyla’s first time working at a MathHappens event and they did a great job interacting with visitors, as did our returner, Devika. We are thankful to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center for allowing MathHappens to be a part of their Austin Museum Day activities. We had a great time and hope to be back soon!
