The word "geometry" might dredge up memories of classrooms, textbooks, and trying to calculate the volume of a cube. But what if geometry instead meant climbing inside cool, giant 3D shapes, or watching yourself in a big curved mirror as you try to play hopscotch? It turns out that seeing things, moving things, and fitting things together are all ways of exploring geometry. And since we're talking an Exploratorium created exhibition is one where geometry is based on action. Sometimes you'll use your hands, other times your entire body and, as always, your brain. Ends September 6, and then travels to St. Paul, San Diego, and to other cities nationally.
