I’m not very good at math myself so I’m pretty stoked that both my kids are pretty good at math and actually enjoy it. I am so excited to announce that the MIND RESEARCH Institute – the people behind Jiji the Penguin and ST MATH are having the Third Annual Math Fair on Saturday, November 5, from 10 am to 6 pm at the OC Fair and Event Center. The event is free and open to the public and will feature mathematically challenging activities, games and performances. My younger son and I attended the first year, when it was held at University of California- Irvine and had tons of fun. We especially liked seeing the 3D Printer in Action.
But don’t take our word for it, watch the 2015 Math Fair Video:
The following are featured exhibits and workshops at the Math Fair:

Math Mystery Theater
Lil’ Mathematician Zone
