This week is our first Math Day at the Maze. We’ve got almost 450 kids ready to learn about how we make the maze and the math concepts we’ve incorporated. We will also have hands-on stations, presented by the Wisconsin Mathematics Council. Dave Ebert, the president, has put together a team of ┬ámath students who will run stations for the younger students. We’re pretty excited–it will be a lot of fun. It’s a lot of kids (we did have to turn some away) but we’ve got lots of activities to keep everyone busy.

How we cut the carbon nanotube in the maze

Carbon nanotube design for the corn maze–we’ll show the kids the symmetry in this figure, and we’ll demonstrate how we cut it!
