Bring Your Grandma to Math2009–2012

Workshops bringing people of all ages together to play with mathematics, for fun

Explored the playful mathematics behind board games, origami, geometric puzzles, and more. Hosted regularly at the MIT Museum, this event series targeted the "I'm not a math person" narrative by bringing together multiple generations, families, and neighborhoods to explore mathematics as mathematicians practice it: playfully, through games, puzzles, and creative projects
