Austin Museum Day Part 5: Austin Nature and Science Center

Lauren SiegelEvents, Nature & Science CenterLeave a Comment

We were enthused about being back at the Austin Nature and Science Center for Austin Museum Day!

Activities included visiting the Human Sunclock, which unfortunately was not fully functional due to it being a cloudy day with only brief moments of sunlight. However, that didn’t stop people from going over and still visiting. Other activities were using navigational quadrants and landscape measuring tape to try and estimate the heights of trees using trigonometry. Then, visitors could decorate and wear their own plumb line. Our golden ratio exhibit was also available inside, which visitors stopped by to investigate.

We had MathHappens veteran Quan and current intern Ben staffing the site. They were wonderful at interacting with people of all ages and being flexible with the weather. We thank our friends at the Austin Nature and Science Center for their constant support and partnership.
