This morning you dropped your child at school, passed by the local bank, picked up your espresso and got to work avoiding the usual traffic jams. You might not be a math genius, you don’t have a sophisticated algorithm in your head and yet you managed to get there fast and efficiently. This is math in action.
The “Who’s Afraid of Math ” exhibition attracts venue visitors via its one of a kind unparalleled interaction, providing enthusiastic access to mathematical insights, heightening visitor interest.
The multi-faceted interactive exhibition has become a welcome addition to a wealth of science centers worldwide and we are constantly striving to add the “Who’s Afraid of Math?” exhibition to more relevant venues globally to share in our success.
Math touches all of our lives, and we chose familiar content to communicate this. Such content as the human body, geography, and language is used to communicate sophisticated mathematical concepts to make math more accessible.
This novel approach to teaching math paved the way to creating the unique and interactive exhibition curated by Dr. Hadar Ben-Sade and consultant Mathematician Ran Segal, together with interactive designers Yiftah Prat and Roy Figovsky.
Originally designed for PERACH’s 5 science centers, The “Who’s Afraid of Math?” exhibition encourages everyone to engage with the interactive installations, allowing them to experience first-hand the phenomena of mathematics. “Who’s afraid of Math?” is fun & engaging and can cater to both groups and individuals.
PERACH Founded at the Weizmann Institute of Science, PERACH (meaning Flower in Hebrew) pairs up children in need from underprivileged backgrounds with university students who act as their mentors, giving the child personal attention and serving as a role model. The care that PERACH children receive from their mentors, helps them realize their potential and blossom into motivated and empowered individuals.
Over the past 45 years, PERACH has become a source of inspiration and practical support to PERACH-like organizations, now operating in more than 20 countries worldwide.
