Competition: The Art of Math Challenge
Celebrate creativity and learning! For the 2020 Art of Math Challenge, student groups from all across the region used math strategies and artistic choices to create 3-D models of paintings in the Barnes collection. A pop-up exhibit of works created for the competition is on display today.
Gather ‘round as Ms. Pam and Ms. Martina from Baby Wordplay share multicultural stories and fun sing-alongs that bring words on the page to life.
