We were invited recently to visit The Leonardo here in Utah. We had never been to The Leonardo, and had heard so many wonderful things about it. We went last weekend during the Pi Day Celebration. The games they had for everyone along their exhibits was so much fun and educational.
Spring Break is coming up fast, and The Leonardo is hosting Camp Cranium for kids in kindergarten through 6th grade. There are two camps to choose from depending on your child’s age.
“Three days. 100 high school students. Cash prizes.” This is the enigmatic slogan of MindRiot, a three-day competition held during the second week of June at The Leonardo museum. The competition changes every year, however the concept has remained the same: get a group of the most unique, most capable teens in Utah and give them a real-world problem to solve. The groups that comes up with the most innovative and feasible solution are awarded with up to $5,000 in cash prizes.
The Leonardo in Salt Lake City held a party for Pi Day Saturday, see the video above for footage of the fun. Check out the story below for more information about the origin of the mathematics-themed celebration.
