|The square wheeled bicycle path at The Museum of Mathematics|
|Looks like fun, huh?|
I've read many complaints about this museum and the kid was absolutely against going, asking "Why would I want to go to a museum to learn more about school stuff?" I explained to him that they had a square wheeled bicycle you could ride which I felt was worth a whirl or two. So we went and even though there are issues, more than a few exhibits were not functioning, the floor layouts are confusing and tight and there didn't seem to be anyone around to help explain the activities, we ended up having a great time.
One of my favorite exhibits is this video projection that uses an image of your body to make a fractal image that makes you into a tree.

There were so many hands on interactive puzzles, multi-dimensional and pattern type computer animation activities that I kept the kid busy for 2 hours. We will definitely go back to MO Math to view the exhibits that weren't working during our visit and see how the museum grows as it has only been open a few months.
As we left the kid said that was fun, that wasn't like school at all...
