Thinker Tinker Lab ~ Geoboard String Art

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math
Join us in the Library Puett Room 2-4 pm * July 18 * All ages

Egyptian mathematician Dr. Caleb Gattegno inventor of the geoboard believed education should be process of enhancing knowledge through problem based learning.

Exploring mathematical concepts and puzzles with geoboards is a fun way to develop understanding of the mathematical tapestry of geometric shapes and how art and geometry go hand in hand.

Playing with geoboards enhances fine motor skills, visual co-ordination and depth perception.  Participants seamlessly gain understanding of shapes, rotation, similarity, counting, angles, patterns, perimeters and just plain all kinds of hands on fun!
