Celebration of Mind uses puzzles, games, and magic to delight, instruct, and bring people together in a spirit of fun.
Begun in 2010 with worldwide events that presented challenging activities and thought-provoking presentations in honor of the late Martin Gardner, Celebration of Mind now offers a growing repository of resources, tantalizing paths and surprising intersections for anybody who's ever wondered, What happens if I do this? .... And then, Why did it do that?
Large and small, formal and informal, past Celebrations on all seven continents have ranged from puzzles on the patio to sleight of hand at the Magic Castle, recreational math in the classroom, and interesting conversations in retirement homes.
Celebration of Mind — Events
2014 marks the centennial of Martin Gardner's birth, inspiring worldwide events on or around his birthday, October 21.
These seasonal guest columns will cover Martin's perennial subjects — math, art, puzzles, magic, skepticism, science, philosophy, and perhaps Dr Matrix will drop by!
Each column will pose a problem to solve, or suggest something to make.
